    1 thought on “Habits of the Heart: Individualism and Commitment in American Life

    1. This multi authored sociological study, first published in 1985 and updated in 1996, posits a common core belief among Americans, the belief that economic success or misfortune is the individual s responsibility, and his or hers alone This individualism values independence and self reliance above all else I thought about this recently after experiencing Verdi s early opera, Ernani, in which the governing virtue was honor, little thought or spoken about today in our country and culture Core belie [...]

    2. This book made me want to bash my head in Boring, repetitive, and I was forced to finish it for class If the bookstore doesn t buy it back, I m setting it on fire and laughing maniacally.

    3. A canonical text of American sociology in the 1980s, sure to be at the center of reading lists about the 1980s A quintessential examination of the mental space of middle class white America, in the late Cold War years, the book is a curiously normative document framed as a piece of positive sociology Its immense popularity stems probably from precisely this balancing act, as well as the great learning wrapped up within Bellah s mellifluous if curiously relaxed and at times repetitive prose Despi [...]

    4. As a former student of sociology with intense curiosity about modern social political economic phenomena, I really enjoyed this book and would probably give a copy as a gift to student friends What I especially liked was the ending where the six 3 pairs American visions of the public good are outlined, ending with the Administered Society vs Economic Democracy, neither of which sound pleasant I especially like how this analysis unfolds from a classical republican perspective and maintains a dist [...]

    5. One of those rare examples of academic writing that escaped to the hoi polloi The title comes from a phrase used by Tocqueville in his observations of American culture Bellah, et al examine modern therapeutic culture and how it contrasts with the deepest, in some ways subconscious desires of society and ideas of the good life In 1985 I m certain this was paradigm shifting stuff and I m also certain it inspired much of the reappraisals of modernity as well as those committed,long standing propone [...]

    6. This is an exceptional sociological examination of American society The authors use Democracy in America as an interpretive horizon for the evolution of American Society in the late 20th century Where de Tocqueville s America was politically and socially engaged, the socio economic factors that have emerged in the last 40 years have worked to undermine communal opportunity The authors provide a nice balance between case studies and social science An exceptional read.

    7. The gist Individualism whether economic or spiritual cannot provide meaning, however worthy the freedom it offers may be Nor can the weak forms of association found in lifestyle enclaves, inhabited as they are only by similar people who join seeking personal fulfillment A meaningful life can only be lived in a community, sustained by tradition and by service to others.

    8. To become a missional community in our culture, we need this instruction from a cultural anthropologist s view This book outlines how Americans are living as products of their surrounding culture It helps us see the forest through the trees.

    9. Every American should read this book It perfectly explains why our society has reached the current fractious, even destructive point it has.

    10. Enlightening and shocking and overwhelming One gets every indication this is a sociological masterpiece The opposite of a light summer read , yet spending the summer underlining, circling, and contemplating the sentences in this book was as demanding as it was satisfying There is too much to summarize here, but one day, maybe.

    11. A contemporary classic of religious sociology Recommended for anyone sincerely interested in understanding the role of religion in American society and culture.

    12. Some interesting points that may help some people to lead a better life But I ve heard this all before and it s a bit convoluted.

    13. C mo es vivir en Estados Unidos Esta parece ser la pregunta fundamental que los autores de este gigantesco estudio trataron de responder A trav s de una gran cantidad de entrevistas y testimonios, pero especialmente, de un fino sentido cr tico, los autores nos plantean un detallado retrato de la vida norteamericana, del ciudadano com n, el que vive en una ciudad cualquiera de una regi n cualquiera de los Estados Unidos, pero sin la pretensi n de querer describir una especie de individuo promedio [...]

    14. Bellah et al are primarily concerned with discussing the inevitable overlap of private and public life in American society Based on 200 interviews with a representative population of white middle class America, Bellah draws the conclusion that, as much as Americans are focused on attaining self reliance and individualism, individualism i.e private life is most meaningful when it is complemented by engagement with society i.e public life He asserts, individuality and society are not opposites but [...]

    15. I am intrigued More and lately, I find myself questioning my lifelong premise that there is a particular purpose for my life, and that it is my duty to discover and fulfill that purpose One may even be hard pressed to prove conclusively that there is any particular purpose, at all, to our individual lives It may be that my life has whatever purpose and meaning I choose to assign to it I m not particularly comforted by that, but now that I have made it through the Preface to the 2008 Edition, an [...]

    16. Relevant for Our TimesUsing interviews of a wide cross section of people, Bellah dissects the problems we face in the post modern world, relates them to the findings of Tocqueville 150 years earlier, provides historical continuity and context with the development of the US and finally offers an approach for change that would need to be of the magnitude of the civil rights movement It really blew my mind, in a good way.

    17. Sociological studywith a focus upon Christianity and American individualismt my style This was a class assignment, and the sociology in the book is quite the turn off It is dryly written and unengaging, for the layman It provides the reader with analysis of all of America s problems in regards to individualism, but offers no solutions highly frustrating.

    18. 1985 sociological study which offers some genuinely profound insights into how Americans talk themselves into narratives of self made people and idealized small towns, although markedly biased by its date amazingly, women were starting to not see men as permanent meal tickets and small town companies were civic minded and hadn t off shored all the jobs yet.

    19. Next to De Tocqueville, an excellent work on American culture.The Appendix contains an extremely helpful explanation of the difference between research universities and traditional colleges Research universities have increased the material prosperity of America, but have impoverished America culturally.

    20. This book was part of a Sociology of Culture graduate class I am an atheist and generally tend to loathe how religion separates us from one another, and the message that I got from this book was that religion is a wonderful thing that is necessary to hold society together I found that very depressing.

    21. I skimmed this book and referenced it heavily for an undergraduate research project The book was given to me and is signed and endorsed to me by my academic advisor I have long been plagued by guilt for never actually reading it cover to cover Now I have.

    22. I had to read it for my Civic Engagement Social Action class Since I do go to a Catholic university I thought it was appropriate for my school and he actually came to my school and spoke to our community about religion and other topics in sociology.

    23. This is pretty dense book to read, almost as bad as a textbook But worth it I loved the ideas about community and the way the authors talked about American values such as independence and how people validate their idea of service If you can stay with it to the end, this book is worth reading.

    24. I could not get through this book The whining, self centeredness, and limited scope of types of people included made the generalizations impossible to stomach It is probably best loved by children of the 60s, or people who spend their time trying to find themselves.

    25. I totally didn t read the conclusion but I was done in the way that mattered this was actually not bad but I realize the only chapters that held my interest were the ones about failing marrige, therapy, and religion so idk

    26. This is a good book, but it is an old book It is very insightful for 1985, unfortunately I think that society has changed quite a bit since then I m not saying that their findings are contradicted, but rather complicated, by recent shifts.

    27. So far, I have paralysis by analysis I am hoping it goes away soon by this is what it all means ending I am not hopeful though.
