Background. The Russian socialization theory does not have any generalizing methodological research studies, dedicated to the development of the framework of categories and concepts. Here one may come across the concept of “socialization” itself, as well as its derivates like desocialization, resocialization, asocialization, expected and unexpected socialization, etc. The purpose of this study is to clarify the content of certain concepts, which can be found in Russian and foreign literature.
Materials and methods. The research tasks of this study were implemented on the basis of the analysis of key publications on the issue of socialization in the Russian and foreign socialization theory. In the study the author used the categorical, generalizing and comparative methods of study, which allowed to compare the content of categories and clarify their meaning.
Results. While maintaining a common interpretation of the socialization concept, the author suggests to explore this phenomenon "from the person", which means to pay maximum attention to the mechanism of internalization of external effects by separate individuals. The researcher proposes to abandon the interpretation of resocialization as a process when an individual is returning to the socially approved behavior after being in a disciplinary cell for some time. Also, some amendments were made to the interpretation of such terms as desocialization, resocialization, expected socialization, etc.
Conclusions. Clarification of the framework of categories and concepts of the socialization theory allows more accurate simulation of internalization of the external influence of significant others by a separate individual. The process of socialization should be regarded as a multilinear development, the study of which is possible only while taking into account a variety of assumptions and conditions, in order to make the resulting picture reflect the reality as much as possible.
