By DONNA MOTEL
David Reisman's book "The
Lonely Crowd" shows through
three stages of character develop-
ment, how modern man is threat-
ened with the loss of individuality
so he is absorbed into the masses,
Prof. Frank Grace of the political
science department said at the
SGC Reading and Discussion Sem-
inar today.
The three divisions of social
character types, according to Reis-
man, are the traditionally - di-
rected, the inner-directed and the
other-directed.
In the traditionally-directed, so-
ciety takes its orientation from
living traditions, which ironically
die as soon as people inquire into
them. When this happens, indivi-
duals fall back upon their own
ideas for direction and guidance.
Enters Unstable Situation
The inner-directed man or so-
ciety is set in motion by his par-
ents or by the community. It is an
unstable situation which doesn't
last. In answer as to why an inner-
directed person is not able to re-
main in this condition, Prof. Grace
suggested such a man is afraid of
the great amount of freedom
which he possesses.
Since he would prefer security to
freedom, he turns to his peers or
such groups for guidance. Thus,
there is a movement towards con-
formity. The man who gains peace
of mind in this security that he ac-
quires, loses the spontaneity and
autonomity that he possessed with
freedom.
When he accepts the guidance
of his peers, he has turned from
being an inner-directed person to
one who is other-directed.
Trends to Conformity
Erich Kahler, author of "The
Tower and. the Abyss," offered a
similar -argument. He said the
trend toward conformity is partly
due to the growth of collectives,
such as political parties and labor
unions, which have an unnatural
development.
