George Herbert Mead dies in Chicago, Illinois. One of America's most important and leading exponents of Pragmatism, Mead was an important figure in the field of Social Psychology. He argued that it's possible to explain human behavior as a product of social interactions with social contexts.

Language, for example, is social in nature — it's not simply used socially, but its existence and the meanings it conveys are based on the social contexts in which we human beings have developed. George Herbert Mead also argued that our sense of "self" is necessarily social because we develop our selfhood through social processes and social interactions.
