This weekâ€™s activities focus on the process that humans undergo to â€˜becomeâ€™ social beings. The discipline of sociology looks at the â€˜selfâ€™ from the perspective of socialization differently than the discipline of psychology would. Take a moment to review the sociological theories of self-development.
Which of the sociological theories of self-development do you find most convincing? In your own words, according to this theory, what is the â€˜selfâ€™ and how does it form? Why do you think socialization of individuals is so important to society?
