Self in Society Socialization Monday, October 3, 2016 9:25 AM How do human beings learn to be social? How de we learn the things we learn? How do we becoming the social creatures that we are? Socialization  Very old field in sociology  Interestingly, very exciting new developments  Work on brain activity coinciding with sociological research  Revealing amazing new things  Tip of the iceberg Human Evolution  We are definitely biological. Fact  The catch? o We are biologically designed to be social  Our society, our ability to be social, is the key to our revolutionary development Hardware-Software  Computer, example o Hardware is necessary but not much without the software  Human, example o Without our hardware, big brains and all that we wouldn't be much o Key is that our hardware is designed to suck up all of the socially generated software Example  Children learning language o Not just by hearing it, they structure it  Children impose more structure than they hear  A built patterning device-Noam Chomsky  Eg. Runned instead of run o Systematically is built into the brain. System of soaking up social content Socialization= they very active process of pillaging the environment around you for the things that compliment the capacities that are built in Ways to think about socialization  Passive models (absorb what we are taught)  Active Models (pursue what we wasn’t)
