In this last of our current series of articles, we describe social interactions in terms of the advanced model of biopsychosocial interaction. Developing the model was meant to explain a conceptual homogeneity overarching all its discretised parts. In effect, we can integrate all relevant contextual processes in understanding human experience and behaviour. Processes emerging from non-living entities, as well as those enacted by human beings, converge on a person and hence elicit combined results, even if they have been categorically distinguished before.
