This study is a field research that aims to investigate the formation of the differences in attitudes assumed by generations towards religious and cultural values in today’s changing socio-cultural environment. The population of the study consists of individuals aged over 18, who are originally from Giresun and who are still dwelling in the province. This research is based on data obtained between January and June 2008 by “easily accessible situation sampling”. A total of 62 interviews and 538 questionnaires were conducted. In this respect, qualitative and quantitative data collection techniques were used in conjunction within this study. We believe that the historical process the Province of Giresun has undergone, the social structure within the province and the social transformation it has experienced are similar, in many ways, to the modernization process and dynamics of Turkey. Therefore, we believe that this study will not only show the regional trend for differentiation of values between generations, but it will also enable those concerned to make comments and evaluations regarding this matter for Turkey in general.
