According to Erik Erikson the culture and society take the first place and they conflict with the self - ego and his principles were largely influenced by Freud’s theory. As per Erikson’s view ego is developed successfully and it revolves crisis which is distinct in its nature. According to him generativity and stagnation are 2 aspects on which all the individuals go through. During the adulthood of a person he establishes his career and they settle down in their relationships and begin their families. Life is a chain of events where the incidents keep happening in a chain and one gives back or pays back to the nature the same way. If he fails to do by being unproductive or due to any reasons his life becomes unproductive and stagnant. Success at this stage will lead to a virtue of care.
