Evolutionary Psychology, Social Emotions and Social Networking Sites -- An Integrative Model
Unformatted Document Text:  needs to cooperate. In modern society (gesellschaft) individuals cannot look to anyone to find meaning in their lives. This transition from community to our new society gives rise to no sense of belonging, dependency and cooperation. Durkheim continued along the same premise. He called living in modern society an anomie—no sense of self, unattachment to people and oneself. Both Durkheim and Tonnies described features of man that suggested some innate social capacity. Karl Marx continued to further explain not only the essential nature of man but described the state of entropy man has realized due to modern life. Tonnies stated that man is in greatest harmony when he is feels as though he is needed by others in his social group. Consequently, Durkheim mentioned without this sense of belonging man falls into a pathology, develops anomie—disconnected from self and others. Marx called this same idea alienation. He expanded this concept to include a thorough characterization of its pathology. Additionally, Marx wrote at great length about the nature of man. His descriptions have similar references and constructs used by the EP model, meaning, reflexive of humanity’s innate capacities. Ultimately, man is a social, creative being. He “knows” the world through his senses, through his perceptions. When a man creates some thing he self-actualizes himself in that object: He has made an object, it is a part of the world and it is real. Also, man can share in reality when he creates objects with others. When a man works with others they can share in the labor. This also lets them understand themselves and relationships. Therefore, there is a social relationship to production. It is a process that requires other people. Man realizes himself through the objects he creates and the social interaction; others can know, understand and realize who is as well by seeing what he does. 9
