Per Max Weber, che si consolida come responsabile per la più famosa classificazione dei tipi di azioni sociali, possiamo evidenziare i seguenti tipi:

  • azioni razionali in materia di valori: le azioni intraprese sulla base dei valori della persona, but without thinking about the consequences and often without considering whether the means chosen are appropriate to achieve it.
  • Rational actions regarding ends (also known as action for ends, from the German zweckrational): actions planned and taken after evaluating the end in relation to other ends, and after considering various means (and consequences) to achieve them. An example would be most economic transactions.
  • Affective actions: actions taken due to the individual’s emotions, to express personal feelings. As examples, celebrating after victory, crying at a funeral, would be emotional actions.
  • Traditional actions: actions based on rooted tradition. An example would be to relax on Sundays and put on lighter clothes. Some traditional actions can become a cultural artifact.

These actions are the basis for the execution of projects at BITNART
