- Power (social and political)
In social science and politics , power is the capacity of an individual to influence the actions, beliefs, or conduct behaviour of others. The term authority is often used for power that is perceived as legitimate by the social structure , not to be confused with authoritarianism. Power can be seen as evil or unjust ; however, power can also be seen as good and as something inherited or given for exercising humanistic objectives that will help, move, and empower others as well.
Conceptualizing power to study social-ecological interactions
Culture and Politics pp Cite as. In several ways, Swidler provides a more developed analysis of the relationship between culture and social movements than does McAdam. First, she focuses on the ways culture shapes individual beliefs and desires. Thus, culture provides a means by which people make sense of the world. Second, Swidler examines the ways culture provides repertoires of public symbols that structure the kinds of expected responses that individuals develop from their social interactions.
A handshake on first meeting a person could be seen as such a symbol: Failure to shake hands once another has been extended is a deliberate insult. Thus, once they have offered it, most people expect that their hand will be shaken. Such an expectation represents cultural knowledge that exists even when no handshake is ongoing. Such assumptions may shape how a social movement acts even if its members are ideologically divided and its contention with the broader society sharp.
Third, Swidler pays attention to the ways social institutions shape movement activities: If official organizations and others try to integrate or co-opt a group, for example, the movement is likely to behave differently than if it faces aggressive, perhaps violent, repression. Culture, then, is more than just the private beliefs of individual group members, and it is more than a set of broad principles that can be used for group purposes.

14.3 Theories of Power and Society
In respone to these concerns, my objective in this paper is to review and synthesize social science theory to facilitate a useful engagement between studies of resilience and the concept of power. The article comprises three parts. First, I briefly review the critique, and how resilience scholars so far have dealt with power conceptually and empirically. Second, I review how power has been used as central concept in social scientific theory, and I introduce a conceptualization of power to study social-ecological interactions. Finally, I illustrate how power can be used to study social-ecological interactions based on the example of fire domestication, and I discuss implications for further research. A closer look at studies of resilience reveals that several of its core concepts resonate with the idea of power as a human capacity to act in social and ecological conditions.

Power (social and political)
These remarks raise some important questions: Just how democratic is the United States? Whose interests do our elected representatives serve? Is political power concentrated in the hands of a few or widely dispersed among all segments of the population? These and other related questions lie at the heart of theories of power and society.

Стратмор закрыл дверцу холодильника и без тени волнения взглянул на Чатрукьяна. - Ты имеешь в виду работающий монитор. Чатрукьян растерялся. - Так вы обратили внимание.
Но Стратмор понимал, что Хейл не станет долго держать язык за зубами. И все же… секрет Цифровой крепости будет служить Хейлу единственной гарантией, и он, быть может, будет вести себя благоразумно. Как бы там ни было, Стратмор знал, что Хейла можно будет всегда ликвидировать в случае необходимости. - Решайтесь, приятель! - с издевкой в голосе сказал Хейл. - Мы уходим или нет? - Его руки клещами сжимали горло Сьюзан.
Algo? - настаивал бармен. - Fino. Jerez. Откуда-то сверху накатывали приглушенные волны классической музыки.
