THE SOCIOLOGY OF ME PROJECT OUTLINE2The Sociology of Me Project OutlineCulture and SocializationIn “Society, the Basics”, Macionis describes culture as “the ways of thinking, the ways ofacting, and the material objects that together form a people’s way of life. Culture includes whatwe think, how we act, and what we own. Culture is both our link to the past and our guide to thefuture”. (Macionis, 20180806, p. 44). Understanding culture requires considering thoughts aswell as the things that make up life in society. The ideas society creates are the Nonmaterialculture. Material culture is represented by the physical things common to a society.Socialization refers to the experiences throughout life which develop personality andcultural knowledge. People require social experience to develop patterns of behavior, thinking,and feeling. We build a personality by internalizing, our surroundings. But without socialexperience, personality hardly develops at all. (Macionis, 20180806, p. 76)Culture and socialization are significant in author’s life based on a highly transienthistory.Influences of agents of socialization such as school and peer groups varied greatly, withcultural relativism becoming altered every few years.oSocial Structure and Groups.
