(p.239) Epilogue
Profane Culture

Paul E. Willis

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter contains some responses to this volume, as formulated by a hippy acquaintance of the author. It begins with a list of people the respondent has known, as well as the manner of their deaths. From here, the chapter embarks on a meditation of the value of existence, particularly of those living on society's margins. This chapter also details some considerations made near Christmas-time, as the same respondent looks back over the past seven years and then returns to the present, directly addressing the author and offering their own thoughts on the subjects explored in this book. Finally, the chapter closes with some concluding insights as well as an anecdote.

Keywords:   hippies, hippy culture, deaths, control agencies, drugs
