Research Methods in Social Network Analysis
The use of social structure as a defining concept has produced a large body of creative speculations, insights, and intuitions about social life. In its broad-ranging examination of the kind of data that form the basis for the systematic study of social structure, this book marks a significant methodological advance.

Strona 17 - culture', since that word denotes, not any concrete reality, but an abstraction, and as it is commonly used a vague abstraction. But direct observation does reveal to us that these human beings are connected by a complex network of social relations. I use the term 'social structure' to denote this network of actually existing relations.
Strona 13 - ... concrete reality'. The real problem is that in social structure we are always faced with parts and relations of diverse nature and variability. There may be parts and relations which recur in all situations in which the organization or institution we are studying emerges, and others which seem to occur only by chance. The former may be constant in some respect but variable in others, corresponding in some ways to the statistician's independent variable ; the latter may be a 'normal' usage or...
