This study focuses on classical and contemporary theories explaining social order. Along with Hobbes and Rousseau, theories of classical sociologists such as Comte, Durkheim and Marx were utilized from primary sources. Also, perspectives of some contemporary sociologists such as Merton, Mead and Parsons were exploited. Later, the position of individual within the social order was handled from a micro-level perspective to explain the effect of social disorder on individual. Finally, the influence of violence and terror on individual was opened to discussion.
