The term for sociology
Social actions are defined as those acts performed by a person or a group in favor of a cause that is considered fair and that positively affects other individuals who are, in some aspect, in unequal conditions.
As defined by the philosopher Max Weber, it can be named as all human behavior whose motor is subjectively significant and that has the effect of valuable changes in the environment in which it acts. It is understood that in an action Social It establishes a specific relationship between two parties that will mark the behavior adopted by each one.
It is necessary to clarify that not every relationship between human beings has a social character. When a person performs an action, it is motivated by their beliefs and ideologies; only in the case where your acts positively affect the environment in which they are developed, we can talk about social action.

It also differentiates between three types of social action:
* traditional, conduct that is motivated exclusively by ideological principles, norms and customs. It is a response to a stimulus that is done almost automatically, without reason being used to make decisions;
* affective, an irrational action that is motivated by a emotion, be it love, hate or other feeling;
* rational according to values, motivated by a rational end. However, this action is subject to the rules or customs of the subject who performs it.
It is important to note that not all currents were inclined to this way of understanding sociology and social actions, imposed by Weber. He functionalism, for example, assured that always a social action was limited by the rules and values of the group.
