Abstract

Parsonian theory has more often than not been misunderstood by the sociological public. By way of a meaning analysis an attempt is made to uncover the basic premises of the theory which make all the difference-that is, those centering around the solution of two intrinsically connected problems: first, the methodological problem of order; second, the social problem of order.
