The measurement of values; behavorial [sic] science and philosophical approaches by Rollo Handy( Book )

11 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of behavioral scientists and philosophers on value measurement is discussed, including a review of issues, controversies, and several attempts to measure values. The author points out vast disagreement in existing literature about value measurement, definitions of measurement and values in general, and the meaning of the scientific method. In this book measurement theory is regarded in its transactional context as an effort to facilitate prediction and control. In a comparison of subjective and objective bases for value measurement, the introspective technique requiring questionnaires and the direct study of striving behavior are described. Representative social and psychological attempts at value measurement are presented, including rank order techniques and inquiries which study both "surface" manifestations and "depth" factors. In a consideration of utility, rationality, and formal approaches to values, the author points out weaknesses in the descriptive, prescriptive, and normative approaches taken by formal models. Theories treating values as objects of interests and selective systems and as preferences and need satisfactions are explored, also. (Av)

A Current Appraisal of the Behavioral Sciences, Revised Edition by Rollo Handy( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses modern scientific inquiry and examines the procedures of inquiry into human behavior used in the behavioral science disciplines. Psychologists look at the individual's adjustive procedures and the evolution of those adjustments within a species. Anthropologists inquire into the behavioral similarities and differences of human cultural groupings, from earliest man to the present. Sociologists investigate the behavior of people in groups and organizations, including the patterns, regularities, variations, and developmental changes in human relations, customs, and institutions. Political scientists study the behavior of human individuals and groups, with an emphasis on the distribution and attainment of political influence and power and on the function, organization, and connections among the political units, institutions, laws, and customs. Other disciplines examined in the book are economics, history, jurisprudence, linguistics, game and decision theory, information theory and cybernetics, and general systems theory. The book devotes a chapter to each field. In addition to the discussion, a selected bibliography and a listing of germane journals are provided for each discipline. (Author/RM)
