Values of American Society

Manuscripts from the American Society Project I

By Talcott Parsons, Winston White

Edited by: Victor Lidz, Helmut Staubmann

The material in Values of American Society remains the principal resource for understanding Parsons' conception of value systems. His treatment of value systems has been much debated, although poorly understood, in considerable part because Parsons never published his full conception, developed only in these manuscripts. They continue to hold interest for social scientists, both for their carefully developed analytical scheme and for the resulting discussion of American culture and society.
