I read this for our monthly study group. It was a disappointing read in that the author, in her attempt to identify values common to all cultures, proceeded to attenuate the concept beyond the point that was acceptable to the group, or at least to this reader. Her attempt to find a minimal set of values flounders by virtue of the goal of the exercise.
The result was a set of values that limited the usefulness of the concept of value. ( )
