7 Conclusion……………………………………………………………………………………… 8 References………………………………………………………………………………………9 Critically discuss the key concepts in Conduct that explain our agency in social worlds and the influences upon it. In doing so, draw upon three sources of material – from academic texts or ‘real life’ situations – external to the course texts. Ideology of a term: CONDUCT Conduct is a word which gives us a simple idea about a human behavior in different aspects of life but when considering under the study of sociology ,it tells us that how deep rooted this issue is. It not only builds a personality of an individual but highly contributes in developing a society. According to the theories of different sociologists, Conduct is something which gives us an argument about gestures, manners, norms, attributes and techniques of a human being according to which one leads his/her life individually or in a community. It not only refers to a manner in which people leads their life but also how ones behavior varies in a particular situations, circumstances, or occasions. For example conduct changes of an agency under extreme influences either happy or sad it depends on the extremity of a situation. Parallel issue of an agency In relevance to the topic of Conduct, there is an issue taken parallel is known as an Agency which is defined as a capacity or capability of an individual according to his/her free will. There are two major strategies of sociology to deal with this issue: Structural Sociology and Action-oriented Sociology. Structural sociology over inner principle Structural Sociological studies approaches with theories of action and agency nonetheless reproduce the idea of an individual and society as two different separate entities by proposing that social order and human conduct are the product of the interaction of fundamentally free human being without any external constraint or pressure. Here inner principle comes in consideration that how it operates an agency .Inner principle gives a major contribution of one’s conduct which is either polished by religious preaching or personality grooming through different institutions. The basic feature of the inner principle is self directed individual agent and is undoubtedly a real capacity but it is not the foundation of these abilities and it does not provide an explanation for the development of a social network. An example which can help us understand the term an agent influencing a conduct of a person is when a child delivers a message to a parent that your friend is there on the phone so the parent if unwilling to attend the call instruct a child to go and give an untrue reason, this is from where a parent acting as an agent starts spoiling an innocent mind. Relation between Structure and an Agency Furthermore, Structure and agency inter relates in a manner that when we analyze the teacher occupation to show how the agent influences the structure in society , the structure is both an outcome of agent action and shape agency action , in this case we show how the agent shapes the structure in the society with reference to the teacher role in the society .The agent and the structure :The teacher can be viewed as an agent of change , his role is to

In the reversal of processes causing such attachment, matter is equally important in allowing social detachment.If this supposition is to be considered carefully,it is evident that the proposals offered by a social constructionist argument in isolation do not completely serve to explain the connections and interactions between people and between people and objects.
Agency in sociology refers to the capacity of individuals to act independently, making free personal choices. This is as opposed to structure which is a sum total of the factors that restrict the individual from acting independently of the social setting (Barker, 2005, 448).
To what extent do accounts of these processes challenge social constructionist arguments? Attachments, both physical and psychological, are constantly being forged in society between people as well as between people and objects. Societal norms and psycho-social factors play a very important role in this regard; however, it is interesting to note that even matter, or material things, play quite a big role in forming these attachments.
This is very important to clearly define the relationship between the individual and the social and necessarily assemble the elements which affect this interaction. Social interactions are very dynamic. Social interactions refer particularly to forms of externalities in which the actions of a group affect an individual’s preferences.
Outline This paper sets out to establish that matter has agency, and that any study of the social worlds may be enhanced by a consideration of the agency of matter. Social Constructivism and Psycho-social approaches will be highlighted to propose that attachment and detachment theory can complement our understanding of the social worlds if matter (and its agency) is considered.
