Countercultural Movements: Why Might One Join?

Amy J. Weitz, The College of Wooster


This thesis explores the willingness of College of Wooster students to join countercultural movements and to find if they join because they feel anomie. The questionnaire measured whether the respondent felt high anomie or low anomie through a number of questions. The questionnaire also found whether or not they would be willing to join a countercultural movement. The results of this study showed that feeling anomie had no relationship with joining a counterculture.
