Symbolic interaction theory, or symbolic interaction theory, is one of the most important viewpoints in the field of sociology, which provides an important theoretical basis for a large number of studies conducted by sociologists. The central principle of the interactionist view is that the social structure that we derive from the world around us and give meaning to the world is the result of everyday social interaction. This view focuses on how we use and interpret things as symbols of communication, how we create and maintain a self that we present to the world and our inner self-consciousness, and how we create and maintain what we believe to be the real reality. Pictures posted on Instagram’s wealthy children show a girl wearing a sweater with the words “Growing up on Champagne”. Symbolic interaction theory helps us understand how this shirt and its photos create meaning in society. This picture is from Tumblr’s feed “Instagram’s Rich Children”, which intuitively records the lifestyles of the world’s richest teenagers and young people. It proves this theory. In this photo, the young woman uses champagne and private aircraft to symbolize wealth and social status. Describing her as “growing up in champagne” and her opportunity to fly in a private jet, the Jersey conveys a way of life of wealth and privilege, which helps to reiterate that she belongs to this very elite small social group. These symbols also put her in a superior position in the larger class of society. Sharing this image on social media and the symbols that make up it, as the Manifesto says, “This is me.” A woman throws pottery on a wheel to symbolize the value and significance of work, as Max Weber described in Protestant Ethics and the Spirit of Capitalism. Learn how Weber can help build interactive perspectives with this work. Sociologists trace the theoretical roots of the interactionist view back to Max Weber, one of the founders of this field. One of Weber’s core principles of theorizing the social world is that we act based on our understanding of the world around us, or in other words, action follows meaning. This idea is at the heart of Weber’s most widely read book Protestant Ethics and the Spirit of Capitalism. In this book, Weber proves the value of this view by explaining how Protestant worldview and moral system in history worked as a call for God’s guidance, which in turn gave moral meaning to devotion to work. Commitment to work, hard work, saving rather than spending money on secular entertainment, follows the accepted meaning of the essence of work. Action follows meaning. President Barack Obama and David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox took a photo at the White House celebration of the 2013 World Professional Baseball Championship. Learning the theory of symbolic interaction helps to explain the popularity of Selfe. Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz posed with US President Barack Obama at a White House ceremony in April 2014 to commemorate the 2013 World Series champion, the Boston Red Sox. A brief description of symbolic interactionism is often mistaken for that it was created by George Herbert Mead, an early American sociologist. In fact, another American sociologist, Herbert Bromer, coined the phrase “symbolic interactionism”. That is to say, it is Mead’s pragmatism theory that has laid a solid foundation for the naming and development of this view. Mead’s theoretical contributions are contained in his posthumous thoughts, self and society. In this work, Mead makes a fundamental contribution to sociology by theorizing the distinction between “I” and “I”. He wrote, and today sociologists insist that “I” is the self as a thinking, breathing and active subject in society, while “I” is the accumulation of knowledge as the self. N objects are perceived by others. (Charles Horton Cooley, another early American sociologist, wrote “I” as “the man in the mirror”, while doing so, he also made an important contribution to symbolic interactionism.) Taking today’s selfishness as an example, we can say that “I” share it with a selfishness in order to make “I” a “self”. It is feasible for the world.
