Description
Sociology October 6 , 2010. Socialization Reading: NS ch. 3, SiQ ch. 4 @ p. 4, ch. 6 @ p. 69 Socialization is the process of learning culture and becoming aware of yourself as you interact with others. Biology sets broad human limits and potential (to create culture) Practitioners of sociobiology (now called evolutionary psych) claim that genes that carry traits from parent to children account for physical traits and specific behaviors Darwins Evolutionary Theory 1. The characteristics of members of each species vary widely 2. Species members with more adaptive characteristics are more likely to survive until reproduction 3. Therefore, the species characteristics that endure are those that increase the survival chances of the species The Logic of Sociobiology 1. Identify a supposedly universal form of human behavior 2. Make up a story about why this behavior increases survival chances
