Abstract: 

Human social actions and the results of these actions are the two basic groups of phenomena are the subjects of explanation in socials sciences. This is why each social science possesses a view on man and on the character and the motives his actions. We cannot demand these models to be fully realistic and similar to what we know about man from our everyday experience and from literature. These models are the result of strong typization and idealization. Such models cannot be checked in a direct way. Their productivity and heuristic power reveals itself in the fact that the make it possible to develop a conceptual apparatus for concrete theoretical work aimed at explication of uncoordinated facts.
