1960's Culture



A way of life and set of attitudes opposed to or at variance with the prevailing social norm.
subculture whose values and norms of behavior differ substantially from those of mainstream society, often in opposition to mainstream cultural mores

Prominent examples of countercultures in Europe and North America include Romanticism , Bohemianism , the more fragmentary counterculture of the Beat Generation, and perhaps most prominently, the counterculture of the 1960's, usually associated with the hippie subculture.

The counterculture of the 1960s refers to an anti-establishment cultural phenomenon that developed first in the United States and in the United Kingdom and then spread throughout much of the Western world between the early 1960s and the early 1970s.
