social solidarity


Also found in: Wikipedia.

social solidarity

the integration, and degree or type of integration, manifested by a society or group. The basis of social solidarity differs between simple societies and more complex societies. Thus in simple societies it is often based on relations of KINSHIP, and direct mutual relations and shared values. In relations between non-kin, and in more complex societies, social solidarity has various bases, e.g. see MECHANICAL AND ORGANIC SOLIDARITY. Whether in more complex societies social solidarity requires 'shared values’, integrative RITUAL, etc., is debated (see CONSENSUS, DOMINANT IDEOLOGY THESIS, RELIGION, CIVIL RELIGION).
