What is Human Nature? Socialization is the process by which people learn the characteristics of their group- knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and actions appropriate for them Nature and nurture effect human development Societal interaction is a key to human development- shown in studies of feral and isolated children Language, social contact and interaction allow humans develop in emotionally “healthy” human beings. This is known as the social environment (entire human environment including direct contact with others) Language is not natural it is learned The family is the primary agent of socialization

“I” and “Me” and the Mind as a Product of Society Self is divided into two parts-”I” and the “Me” I is the self as subject, creative, active part of self Me is the self as an object Mead drew the conclusion that not only the self but the human mind is a social product We think using symbols. Symbols come from societies, like language. If society did not provide symbols we could not think The mind is a product of society

    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.
