Pioneering conceptual analyses of social groups and behavior, Parsons and Shils (1951) and Parsons and Smelser (1956) addressed the utility of social behavior in meeting the needs of adaptation. Influenced heavily by economists, Parsons not only provided a theory of goal-directed action aimed at directly serving adaptation but also a theory of the social structures that support such action. His concepts range from complex social organizations, through the functional imperatives that require such organizations, to personality and its socialization which in turn serve such imperatives.
