This film examines the authors of symbolic interactionism—George Herbert Mead, Charles Horton Cooley, Herbert Blumer, and Erving Goffman.
Mead's book "Mind, Self, and Society" is the foundational text of symbolic interactionism. He writes that social interactions create self, leading to the idea of differences between the me and the I.
Cooley believed that what an individual thinks that others think about them creates self. He called it the looking glass self.
Blumer coined the name symbolic interactionism. He believed humans act based on the meaning they have to a person. That meaning is created by social interaction with others.
Goffman wrote "The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life." He believed daily social interactions are a type of theatrical performance for the individual.
