“The fundamental dialectic process of society consists of three moments, or steps. They are externalization, objectivation (or habitualization) and internalization. Externalization is the ongoing outpouring of human being into the world, both in the physical and the mental activity of men. Objectification is the attainment by the products of this activity of a reality that confronts its original producers as a facticity external to themselves and other than themselves. Internalization is the reabsorption into consciousness of the objectivated world in such a way that the structures of this world come to determine the subjective structures of consciousness itself.” *
