In this quotation, the idea of homeostasis is taken from the individual and applied to the wider society outside of the individual, specifically, the institutions listed above. Essentially, there is a continuation of homeostasis. The biological idea of homeostasis is taken and applied to the social world, there is self-regulation at the social level. This is all part of the non-automated self-regulation. Institutions, similar to internal homeostasis, are created for promoting the survival and well-being of homeostasis, however on a larger scale. These allow for the continuation of the governance of our social life by emotions and feelings to improve our situations and situations of others. Social institutions act in the same homeostatic way as internal homeostasis. Evolution has given us a human nature that has possibilities to feel pain and pleasure for ourselves and others. Through having emotion and feelings people are becoming more and more cooperative. This is related to homeostasis extending to culture, society and ethical rules and other social ways of doing things are a part of this.
