Socialization

Socialization

Man is not only social but also cultural.

Every society prescribes its own way and


means of giving social training to its new born
members so that they may develop their own
personality.

The social training is called Socialization.

The process of socialization is conditioned by


culture.

Man is not born social

At birth the human child possess the


potentialities of becoming human.

The child becomes a man or person through


variety of experiences.

Socialization means the process whereby an


individual becomes a functioning member of
the society.

Socialization is a continuous process.

Theories of Socialization

C.H. Cooleys looking-glass self theory


He held that self and social are two sides of the
same coin
Our ideas, loyalties, attitudes and points of view
are derived from others.
The individual develops the idea of self through
contact with the primary group, particularly with
the members of the family.
The self arises when the person becomes an
object to himself.

Theories of Socialization

George Herbert Meads Theory of self


the individual, largely through interaction,
becomes aware of himself.
The individual in order to get a picture of himself,
plays the role of others.
The child tries to understand the relative roles of
various individuals involved in the same social
context.
The self is a product of social interaction. It arises
in social experience.

Theories of Socialization

Sigmund Freud and his concept of Human


Mind.
He has divided human mind into three
compartments
Id is concerned only with satisfying the animal
impulses of man.
Ego serves as the mediator between desire and
action. It represses the urges of the id when
necessary.
Super Ego holds up the behaviour norms of
society. It provides the ego the idea of moral and
immoral.

Theories of Socialization

W.I. Thomas theory of the Definition of the


situation.
The situation in which the child finds himself has
already been defined for him.
The rules according to which he must behave are
determined by the group into which he is born.
The child cannot behave according to his own
whims and fancies.

Theories of Socialization

Durkheims Theory of Collective


Representation
The individual becomes socialized by adopting the
behaviour of his group.
Collective representation is the body of
experiences, ideas and ideals of a group upon which
the individual unconsciously depends for his ideas,
attitudes and behaviours.
Collective representation have a great force
because they collectively created and developed.
