Assessing Personal and Social Change in Two Generations
As we look back on the student generation of the 1960s we see that the university environment was characterized by unprecedented unrest. Many young people were developing their own values and lifestyles in a milieu marked by conflict between the value system they perceived in their families and those of significant others outside the family context. The substantive focal concerns were civil rights, humanitarian goals and ethical consistency, outrage against the war in Vietnam, and disillusionment with the university. Seeking to develop perspective about the impact of a decade of social unrest on the personological characteristics, value orientations, and goal definitions of persons in proximity to this foment is an irresistable temptation.
