    Default "in society" or "in the society"

    Hi everyone,

    I have some doubts about whether I should use "in society" or "in the society". Are there any differences in meaning?

    Thank you!

    As always, context is everything. Both are possible. If you give us the sentence and the context you are trying to use the phrase in, we will be able to help further.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
