Abstract

Functional losses, increased mobility, declining status ascription, and the ascendency of materialistic values, cited either singly or in concert, are frequently the identified causal agents and results of familial change. A reexamination of these factors suggests, however, that there are severe limitations in employing them as explanations of change. It is contended, moreover, that the current value predicament in American society does not point to a revolution in family values which other analyses have indicated. Rather, the preponderance of evidence strongly suggests increased interpenetration and interdependence between the family and the economic sphere.
