Considering and trying to examine society as a system means accepting the fact that social organization, social functioning and change could be explained through a scientific theory of system. Each society is a complex system with a number of components. A system refers to a unity in which each of the structural elements within it is connected with each other and to organization. Both the formation of structural elements that constitute the system and the realization of an organized unity depend on the proper functioning of each of these elements. Each one of the elements of social system is indispensable to the extent that they carry out their specific functions in the formation and existence of the system. A system with a dynamic balance is mobile and has a changing characteristic; however, it manages to maintain this balance despite change. In social system analysis, in which basic starting point is action, the individual, who is the smallest unit, is evaluated in terms of his interaction with others. This interaction depends on the individual's act in accordance with his expected role. Therefore, it will be useful to discuss the concepts of social status and role first in social system analysis.
