Why is the social world important?

Humans are fundamentally social beings   - Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC)

Survival: shared expectations, social conventions & norms help create order and keep conflict to a minimum

Though in the past, social worlds collided too

Individuals and the social world mutually influence and make one another; e.g. language, trade, writing, work, science, faith. “No man is an island.” No individual meaning or purpose truly possible without reference to the whole social system.

This has become true to all collectivities, like national states, cultural world regions, etc.
