'U' Reputation Lures Guttman

Prof. Louis Guttman, an inter-
national authority on social and1
psychological measurement, has
come here to spend a year work-
ing with what he describes as
two world-renowned departments
-the University's psychology and
sociology departments.
Hp is serving as visiting profes-
sor in both, on leave from the

past few years he has developed
"facet theory" as a general ap-
proach for designing behavioral
theories in a way which ties them
immediately with empirical data.
Important applications have al-
ready been made for the defini-
tions of inteliligence and of inter-
personal relations. He also devel-
oped a method for radial plotting
in the field of mental testing.
Guttman is the originator of
scale analysis, a technique for
studying the structure of qualita-
tive data. He developed the pre-
liminary ideas while he was a
graduate student and perfected
them while working on morale
studies for the American Army
during World War II.
This work began immediately
after Pearl Harbor, when mei.
were complaining because they
were trained without weapons,
Guttman said. Food was bad, the
barracks were impersonal and the
men were homesick, he added.
Guttman's research group at-
tempted to guide the general staff
in finding a solution to these
problems, and they used scale an-
alysis in their work. Their morale
studies were expanded to all thea-
tres of operation throughout the
war, and have been reported in
the classical four-volume series,
"The American Soldier," Gutt-
man said.
His technique for scale analysis
is non-metric; data need be clas-
sified only by items, each a set
of mutually exclusive and exhaus-
tive categories.
Scale analysis has been used
to rank people by their behavior,
political parties by their ideolo-
gies, consumer products by atti-
tudes toward them, and Supreme
Court justices by their judgments
on various cases. It is now being
used in anthropology, political sci-
ence and economics, as well as in
psychology and sociology.
In Israel, Guttman used facet
theory and scale analysis to de-
termine a system of job evalua-
tion for all civil servants for the
Israeli government to aid in de-
termining the salary for each

The overall rule for determin-
ing the level of a job was the
amount of control the individua
had over his work, as expressed
in three different ways:
-How detailed the guidelines
for his work are;
-The amount of subordination
to the supervisor; and
-The amount of time under su-
"This may be one of the most
important current practical appli-
cations of scale analysis," Gutt-
man said.
In his current research, Gutt-
man is attempting to study the
relationships between tests meas-
uring analytical ability and tests
measuring achievement ability
His studies utilize the new non-
metric computer technique he de-
veloped this summer before leav-
ing Jerusalem, which is operation-
al on the University's IBM 7090

"I simply do not believe that
man is perfect or can be made
that way," he said.
Marxists' Failure
The failures in practice of the
attempts to institute Marxism
suggest that Marxism is incor-
rect, he said. It has failed either
because it needs revision and
amendment or because its basic
assumption that the motivations
of all Marxists are purely noble
is false. "I tend to believe in the
truth of the latter."
Referring to present day social-
ism, Muncy said that it is real-
istic, while the early socialists
were unrealistic. Those elements
necessary for it to exist are pres-
ent, he added.
Basic Tenets
He outlined four basic tenets of
socialism today: j
-The means of production must
be socially owned. This does not
necessarily mean political owner-
ship by the state;
-Production must be carried
on for use, not profit as in cap-
-Goods and useful services
must be so distributed that each
useful servant or worker gets the
full value for his labor; and
