Alienation is essentially a sociological concept developed by several classical and contemporary theorists and is "a condition in social relationships reflected by a low degree of integration or common values and a high degree of distance or isolation between individuals, or between an individual and a group of people in a community or work environment." The concept has many discipline-specific uses, and can refer both to a personal psychological state and to a type of social relationship.
