Welcome to Social Compass! Thank you for visiting.

   George Herbert Mead

George Herbert Mead, American philosopher and social theorist, is often classed with James, Charles Peirce, and John as one of the most significant figures in classical American pragmatism. John referred to Mead as “a seminal mind of the very first order” (Dewey, 1992). Yet by the middle of the century, Mead’s prestige was greatest outside of professional philosophical circles. He is considered by many to be the father of the school of Symbolic Interactionism in sociology and social psychology, although he did not use this nomenclature. Perhaps Mead’s principal influence in philosophical circles occurred as a result of his friendship with John Dewey. There is little question that Mead and John had an enduring influence on each other, with Mead contributing an original theory of the development of the self through communication.
