George Herbert Mead- The I and the Me - Individuals and Society - MCAT - Khan Academy
I suppose tons of work has been done in coming to an understanding of the development of language, individuality and society, but I would like to describe here the views of an American philosopher, sociologist and psychologist named George Herbert Mead. His most prominent work was a piece of the same title as this post: Mind, self and society The main theory that he came up with is symbolic interactionism , parts of which I describe in this article.
Mind, Self, and Society
George Herbert Mead. Chicago: University of Chicago : We have approached psychology from the standpoint of behaviorism; that is, we have undertaken to consider the conduct of the organism and to locate what is termed "intelligence," and in particular, "self-conscious intelligence," within this conduct. This position implies organisms which are in relationship to environments, and environments that are in some sense determined by the selection of the sensitivity of the form of the organism. It is the sensitivity of the organism that determines what its environment shall be, and in that sense we can speak of a form as determining its environment.
George Herbert Mead is one of the seminal influences in symbolic interaction , which is a semiotically oriented subfield within sociology. Symbolic interaction alone claims that action is based on meaning, and meaning is socially derived. I think that the pair of meaning and action is strongly reminiscent of the semiotic dyad. I would like to consider symbolic interaction from the perspective of symbolic cognitive science and AI. The flaws of symbolic AI are tempered by the social origin and construction of meaning, and the manner in which action and meaning are interweaved. Mead describes his work as behaviorist, but he interjects an important layer between stimulus and response, which is the matter of interpretation.

Mind, Self, and Society is a book based on the teachings of American sociologist George Herbert Mead 's, published posthumously in by his students. It is credited as the basis for the theory of symbolic interactionism. Charles W. Morris edition of Mind, Self, and Society initiated controversies about authorship because the book was based on oral discourse and Mead's students notes. George H. Mead shows a psychological analysis through behavior and interaction of an individual's self with reality. These experiences lead to individual behaviors that make up the social factors that create the communications in society.
