Title A theory of organization and change within value-attitude systems
Source Journal of Social Issues, 24, 1, pp. 13-33
Year 1968
Access date 13.04.2013

My purpose this afternoon is to present a first report of an ongoing research program broadly concerned with the relations existing among values, attitudes and behavior. In the first part of this paper. I will consider the functional and structural role which attitudes, values and value systems play within a person's total system of belief (Rokoach, 1960), some conditions which might lead enduring change in values, and some consequences which might be expected to follow from such change. In the second part of this paper, I will briefly describe our approach to the measurement of the values and the value systems, and I will report some results relevant to several facets of the theoretical formulations discussed in the first part of this paper.

Unlike other cognitive approaches in contemporary social psychology which focus attention on the attitude organization and change, we are focussing our attention on attitude organization and change, we are focussing our attention primarily on value organization and change.
