The Merriam-Webster dictionary give the definition of a society as:

An enduring and cooperating social group whose members have developed organized patterns of relationships through interaction with one another.
A community, nation, or broad grouping of people having common traditions, institutions, and collective activities and interests.[1]

The general use of the term 'society', in common culture, tends towards the second definition above. Society is often differentiated along geographical/wordview, with terms such as Western society being popular.

The most irreducible, or bio-historically original, meaning of the term 'society' is to that unit of multiple-human relationship without which there could be no other kinds of multiple-human relationship: male and female, one man and one woman, compatible as mates and as companions. The civil institution of marriage is for the preservation of that unit, within a world in which there exists ontological disharmonies between individuals.
