Embodiment and Socialism

This paper addresses sociological concepts such as the "self" and "embodiment" as it is experienced/lived in a Socialist state. Embodiment as the physical and mental experience of existence in relation to other people, offers the foundation of this paper's argument. As Americans, these concepts are stunted due to our capitalist environment. Through looking at the cultural history of the Soviet Union, this paper offers multiple examples of how daily life, values, and ambitions differ within a socialist environment.
