Sociology, according to Max Weber, is the science whose object is to interpret the meaning of social action. Sociology gives a causal explanation of the way in which the action proceeds and the effects which it produces. Society is best conceived as the product of interactions between component individuals controlled by a body of traditions and norms. According to Robert Ezra Park, social control is the central fact and the central problem of society. According to Georg Simmel the problems of modern life flow from the attempt of the individual to maintain the independence and individuality of his existence against the sovereign powers of society.
