George: he is an American. He was born 1863, more like the generation like
Durkheim. Father is minister, mother put lots effort in election. His father made
alcohol illegal. Political sense; memorize the text and the bible. He lost the faith of
the churches, and personal relationship to faith. He has a engineering background.
He studied philosophy with James, who was the famous philosopher at that time.
They went to study in Germany, and met the leader in psychology. He came to
university of Chicago, when the Chicago was developing and the education
institutions are building up. Settle houses movement: classic educational boarding
for poor people. He talk social psychology in university and was a great lecturer. One
problem he had was, he was never able to write down what he had say. Better at
speaking than writing. That is why is not as compelling way as Durkheim. Some of
his students gather together his idea as Symbolic Interactionist. He died in 1961.
The Act: his teaching was in psychology and philosophy, and his studies are known
as social psychology, which is trying to understand that how we are created
through interacting with other people. And that is what he is really best known for.
His core area is psychology. The main dominant school thought in his time, was
called as behaviourism. The main idea about that was: to study human behaviours
in scientific way’s only way is to study the observable behaviours; I am looking at
you but I dont see your mind, intention and motivation; But only the input and
output behaviours; so that all we can know is the external movements.
BUT, he does not think behaviourism is correct, but does agree that we have to
observe something in the world to see the existence. If you believe peoples self and
mind are real, you should also believe that the mind is observe but it has to be in
some way it work through like something you do in the world or like your activity.
SO, how can you observe your mind? Instead of looking of mind through the brain,
the way is observe the mind in the world, as the activity in the world.

First, you have to unpack the idea in act. For behaviourism, the behaviour is what
you are doing. All in between is the activity in the world.
1.Impulse. We all have impulse, which is about the any feeling of needs of
doing something. Example: feeling thirsty means something in the
environment like stream or the impulse inside of need to drink. What does
that come from? It is from you inside and environment at the same time. You
have the need, and the environment stimulate you want to drink. The inside
and the environment cannot be separated. We as the organism for many
years, survival by drinking water, and in the environment with many water.
So it is dynamic system.
2.Perception: you have impulse of drinking water; you may even at the same
time see a glass of water in front of you. It is about you look around; you find
all the things that are relevant to my impulse. But can you drink it? When
you are thirsty, you will looking for anything in the environment that is
relevant to you desire like to drink. Animal see the water and will drink. But
human is more evaluated, human beings are selected to be the most
stimulate??????....they will make choice
3.Manipulation: not you look at the glass of liquid, but you drink it. It may be
poison. Human will manipulate the objects in the environment before they
make actions. You may have a book saying that you have to boil the water to
drink it. But not just drink it directly. So that you are able to extend your
think to the future and to the back. Like I have see many clear liquid before,
which is different or same or other types of thinking. So that you mind
activity is extended temporarily to have broad thinking.
4.Consummation: human has perceived the world and objects, and then found
that he put this in the evolution context, that human with all the ability
are more likely to survive.
Human is behaviour is continuous with world. Animal has weaker ability of
doing all the things. And other way: there is always dynamic relationship of the
situation and you. It is back and forth relationship. The dynamic relationship with
the environment leads to his idea: interaction, which is not about the natural
environment abut it is with other people.
Interaction: being a natural scientist, who are studying human in an internastic
way; what the basic level and higher level of capacity of human and animal:
www.notesolution.com
1.The capacity to make Gestures: the basic capacity of human and animal,
owned by human and animals. Gestures are defined as the movements of the
first organism, which act as the first certain specific stimuli calling for
appropriate responses of the 2nd organism.
a.For example: the dog; dogs could make gesture. A gesture is basically
body movement, a reference for other organism and to get other
organism to change their behaviours.
b.So that the gesture is any movement doing to the environment to
change other organism to change the behaviour to you. To get the
other dog to change the behaviour.
c.Only have some communicative significance: communicate to other
dog indicating what you should do.
2.The conversation of gestures: this is the extension of the first idea. Not
only the make the movement but actually go back and forth to make the
conversation between the movement based on the gestures we have just
made. All the wow indicates that the dogs are going to fight upon the bone.
Because they are communicating with their intensions, which what they are
going to do. The intension is observable here in a way of gestures, which
the communicating of what will happen. No thinking here, but just response.
There is thinking based on the gestures and that is social communication.
Response to the signal sent by other people and send back appropriate
signals.
3.But you could take it to a higher level, and this is called as significant
gestures and will eventually become the significant symbols based on the
collective gestures. Significant gestures are the higher level interpretations:
the response that brings out the other organism who you are dealing with
and who are thinking what you are actually want to bring out, is identical to
what you are trying to bring out; the significant gestures has the same
meaning to everybody involved in the conversation, including the ability to
consciously dealing with how others will response to the gestures or symbols
that you made. Try to anticipate ahead of time what the other object intends
to do. The other object analyzes the same meaning as what you tend to
release to it. So between the dogs, if I wow, or whatever, you give me the bone;
or if I do another, you give me the bonethe kind of conversation or trade
between the dogs.
