Dewey expressed the idea of pragmatism, stressing that consciousness is an instrumental nature, r. e. is a means of adapting the individual to the environment.

Highest stage of socialization, according to M., is the formation of social reflexive 'I', reflecting the totality of Inter-individual interactions and the ability to become an object for himself. At this stage, the external social control 'grows' in a person inside and takes the form of internal self -. Concept M. had a significant impact on the development of social psychology, in particular, laid the foundation of symbolic interactionism ( 'Consciousness, the individual and society', 1934).
