In the following sentence I need to find a synonym for "part of". Also I don't like how "construe" sounds in the sentence.

The sociological perspective of structuralism construes aspects of society as being part of a cohesive and self-sustainable system.

    If you elaborate on why you don't like construe in the sentence and why you need a synonym of part of, it will be a much better question. – user140086 Oct 10 '15 at 11:52

    Plagiarism is not presenting another's words as your own but presenting another's thoughts as your own. Don't bother paraphrasing: give the original in quotes and provide the citation, which is obligatory in any case. – StoneyB Oct 10 '15 at 12:15
