Determinism says that it doesn’t necessarily have to be a physical cause and that it could be an invisible cause in our brains.

When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.

They never shield each other and go through the pain of losing his mother/wife at the beginning of the camp (Wiesel, 2006). There is so much sadness and pain in the camp that it drives Eliezer crazy and he
Barbee is blind to Bledsoe’s ways when no one else is around. Emerson’s son signifies people who just want to do the right thing. Emerson’s son could not allow Invisible Man to continue on his unconquerable journey without revealing Bledsoe’s true motive to him. In a way, Brockway’s character mirrors Bledsoe. He is willing to do anything to keep his position and will stop anyone who is in his way.
His relationships with his parents needs a lot of work mainly his mother. He needs to be reassured that he is just as important as his brother Buck. Conrad quit the swim team, because he felt the members of the team was his brother’s friend not his.
