Family, Marriage, and Parenthood

By Howard Becker; Reuben Hill | Go to book overview
single traits from their specific contexts in family and community and "compared" these; it was incapable of explaining either the diversity of the traits or the significance of the special case.These two developments in the field of genuinely comparative study -- the type analysis method of Becker and Redfield and the neo-Freudian method of Kardiner and his associates -- are complementary. The one aims ultimately at a more complete understanding of personality; the other aims at precise scientific knowledge of the basic patterns of family structure and change. New vistas are opened by these new directions that the study of the family has assumed.
