Understanding and Misunderstanding Individual Modernity
Inkeles, Alex
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 8, 2, 135-76, Jun 77
A number of issues have arisen from the publication of "Becoming Modern" by Inkeles and Smith. This paper raises each issue in turn and attempts to support the major assertions of that study. Included are such issues as the reasons for studying the individual, the role of personality characteristics, the personal features of modernity, the universality and empirical status of the concept, and others.
