Socialization as Biological-Social Interaction
Socialization is a social process with strong biological components that interact with social and cultural frameworks and factors. The chapter illustrates the interplay of social and genetic factors, referring to studies that underline that babies are biologically designed for moving into communities of signs, as well as to meta-perspectives on the relationship between evolution and culture.
