This paper looks at the controversial question of what makes us who we are. The issues of religious and political ideologies as well as the influence of the family are dealt with in this essay.

From the Paper:

"This is a complicated question, whether one is referring to something serious like religious belief or political ideology or even something silly like preference in ice cream. Clearly a great deal of influence comes from one's family and the values that one was taught as a young child. But one's political ideology is also a function of extra-familial factors as well including (as Foner so eloquently demonstrates) the historical moment that one is born into and one's own experiences as one grows up.
