Emerging Adulthood

Jeffrey Jensen Arnett

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines some of the religious beliefs and values that are part of the world views of emerging adults. Both the diversity of emerging adults' beliefs and their common determination to think for themselves with regard to religious issues are explored, along with their responses to two questions concerning their values for their own lives and the values they wish to pass on to the next generation. Together, these two questions provide an outline of the extent to which emerging adults' values reflect individualism and collectivism.

Keywords:   emerging adulthood, emerging adults, religious beliefs, values, individualism, collectivism
