Also the ideas focused on in my exercise have as well helped me to form an idea where identities come from and what they mean socially. John Locke had the idea that people in a society truly want to live together in harmony and that people are not aggressive by nature.
I completely agree with this statement. How people are brought up and what they are exposed to defines their identity and intentions in society. I was brought up by loving parents that among others things taught me to be true to my feelings and to express them truthfully.
He stated that corruption come from society. Charles Harton Cooley also touched on the idea of identities. He believed that identities are formed from interactions with people in society.
This would mean that the more interactions one has the more choices that have to form their own identity. Otherwise we create one sided identities and opinions of ourselves and others. I feel that that is what college is all about.
To be exposed to others and their ideas to help yourself and people around you to form ideas. In a way social interactions are a learning process and a part of higher learning.
George Herburt Mead said that all group life is from social interaction. That humans can work together well for social reasons. But I believe this to be true only if people have been exposed to enough interactions, only then are we able to come together for common ideas and the good of society.
Furthermore he said that we have the capacity to figure out the intentions of people, but again only after we have substantial exposure to society.
Mead stated that we must use the same meanings for gestures and find a common understanding. This is the foundation of language and the process in which we learn how to communicate with others. Finally, my identity exercise not only help me to figure out my own identity but how I am perceived by others.
I feel that the only way to get around people judging others is to continue to interact in society.
Only then will I be able to work for the common good of the society I live in because I will have to knowledge to do so. To become educated and to help society I feel that college is an excellent way of learning how to do this. College is more than just going to class and trying to get the grade, but it is there as a tool to help us open our minds.Identities and How they are Formed From this section of the course I have learned about different philosophies and ideas about how identities are formed.

Identities and How they are Formed From this section of the course I have learned about different philosophies and ideas about how identities are formed.
Personal identity deals with philosophical questions that arise about ourselves by virtue of our being people (or, as lawyers and philosophers like to say, persons).
This contrasts with questions about ourselves that arise by virtue of our being living things, conscious beings, material objects, or the like. Even today, you may often hear the phrase, 'body and soul'.
This way of thinking has evolved from the ideas of religious traditions as well as philosophical ways of viewing our personal identity. Even today, you may often hear the phrase, 'body and soul'.
