It is obvious that to classify anything you must have some standard of
selection. When we come to human society we find that the members of a
society, could be classified in an indefinite number of ways depending on
the objects or attributes chosen as criteria. Both objective and subjective
criteria are relevant: first objective criteria: sex, income, occupation,
education, material possessions, etc., etc.; secondly: subjective criteria:
"I am working class" etc., or self-assessed status, participation in certain
social activities and relationships.
