  • Social Conditioning
    • This approach believes that people think and act in line with their social conditioning rather than through genetic determined factors or a real freedom of choice.
      • Therefore, human actions must have a "distinct social cause."
    • Sowell
      • Social conditioning: ""The idea that the human self is infinitely plastic, allowing humanity to be changed and ultimately perfect."
    • Our social learning and placement is what determines our actions and we can do nothing else except follow the sociologically determined path.
