Summary/Abstract: The study aims to sketch the theoretical and methodological background of former Hungarian norms and values studies, and their relation to the question of social integration. We can identify two, seemingly unrelated research fields in Hungarian sociology: one of them is the sociology of deviance having a collectivist theoretical and methodological background; the other one is the domain of values studies primarily focused on individuals. Between these two main research approaches there is a significant discrepancy. In my study I propose a joint examination of the two areas, interlinking the micro and macro levels. In particular, I model a joint anthropological examination of the different systems of values and the concrete actions.
