socialisation

behavioural conditioning, especially in home background, school or associational setting. Often regarded as requiring only minimal reasoning from the individual, except in its extreme form of 'brain-washing', it remains open to reasoned challenge. Although education itself involves some elements of socialisation, these belong more at the level of inductive and instructional end of education, in contrast to initiation into critical autonomy.
