Youth Life-Worlds and the American Culture.
Webb, Rodman B.
The task of this chapter is to explore the relationship that exists between individuals and society in the American culture. A special emphasis is placed on the experience of growing up in America and attention is given to those portions of everyday life that create the varying images of self and humankind that young people accept as real. Discussion is devoted to the specific topics--the problem of the demands of a pluralistic society, the role of the school in creating images of man, the multiple identities created by a complex world, the options of institutional and personal identities, youth discontent, and three styles of adaptation and rebellion--philistine, bohemian, and creative.
