Generational Discontinuity in Beliefs: An Exploration of the Generation Gap
Thomas, L. Eugene
Journal of Social Issues, 30, 3, 1-22, Sum 74
In an effort to seek theoretical clarification, a modified version of Rokeach's typology of belief systems is used to examine the evidence for a gap between generations on different levels of beliefs. It appears that writers who have argued that a counterculture is emergin among the younger generation are concentrating on the value orientation level, while the debunkers of the notion of a generation gap have focused almost entirely upon the level of attitudes.
