The concept of socialization is widely used in the field of social studies. But what is the importance of socialization to Social Science? To seek to offer answer to this question, a bibliographical search on socialization was carried out. Furthermore, our experience in the teaching of social sciences, especially of Sociology, was also used. It is concluded that, despite the plethora of definitions of socialization, this process of formation of the social human is a key concept in Sociology and in the remaining Social Sciences, by allowing the interconnection between society and culture.
Keywords: socialization, sociability, culture, society, Sociology, Social Sciences.
