The materials in Values of American Society remain the principal resource for understanding Parsons' conception of value systems. His treatment of value systems has been much debated, although poorly understood, in considerable part because Parsons never published his full conception, developed only in these manuscripts. They continue to hold interest for social scientists, both for the carefully developed analytical scheme and for the resulting discussion of American culture and society.
