The Fragmented Generation

  • Scott Seider and Howard Gardner

We propose “The Fragmented Generation” as an appropriate moniker for America’s current generation of young adults. The authors consider how the historical and technological contexts in which these young people have come of age have contributed to the generation’s fragmented nature. Wikipedia, the open source encyclopedia, provides a metaphor for considering the characteristics of young Americans in comparison to those of previous generations.
