“The paramount fact is that men come into the world not alone with the objects of nature but also with other men, and through this encounter they are transformed into human beings. The environment of others and the products of their labor become a powerful, comprehensive region of forces within which each moves and has being.” ~ Solomon Asch, 1952

One great splitting of the whole universe into two halves is made by each of us: and for each of us almost all of the interest attaches to one of the halves; but we all draw the line of division between them in a different place. When I say that we call the two halves by the same names, and that those names are "me" and "not-me respectively, it will at once be seen what I mean. The altogether unique kind of an interest that each human mind feels in those parts of creation which it can call "me or "mine …is a fundamentally psychological fact. ~William James, 1890

The Self: Definition & Importance The way in which the person is made meaningful or given significance. The self is an organization of the various, sometimes competing, understandings of who one is across time: past, present, and future. The self is a set of orienting, interpretive frameworks (self- schemas) that give shape to what people notice and think about, what they are motivated to do, and how they feel.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
