What did George H Mead contribute to sociology?
George Mead developed the Stages of Self in Sociology. This is a
theory of Social Behaviorism to explain how social
experience develops an individual's personality.
The "self"is the part of an individual's personality that is
composed of self-awareness and self image. The self concists of two
parts. The "I" and the "me".
The I, is basically the way we see ourselves.
The Me is how we think others see us.
The I and Me are a dual perspective with the subject (I) doing
the viewing, and the object (me) being viewed.
Its all about balancing our individuality out with what society
wants us to do.
