Experience-Worlds of Mountain People

by M. Taylor Matthews - 1937

The central analyses of the book concern three situations in the relationships between the person and his institutions. Measures are found, first, for the degree to which the person identifies himself with each of his institutions. Next, the study weighs the burden of conformities exacted from persons by each of these institutions. Finally, other techniques measure the extent to which each institution satisfies the basic wishes of the person, produces the sanguine personality (as distinguished from those states of mind classifiable as choleric, phlegmatic, or melancholy), and provides a continuum of events involving major and minor climaxes from which the person may derive in part his experience of meaning.
