Example text

His genius is the wellspring of invention or discovery. While not denying that one person can build on the achievements, or stand on the shoulders, of others, they point out that achievement goes beyond what has already been done; it is something new, created by the individual. Individualism involves a value system, a theory of human nature, and a general attitude: 1) Its value system may be described in terms of three propositions: (a) the individual is of supreme value, society being a means to his/her ends, (b) all values are man-centered – that is, they are experienced by human beings, and (c) all 26 H.

A nation-state is an intricate network of interfacing networks ‘different in extensiveness and intensiveness’ (Michael Mann). Its basic units are ‘involved in a continuous interplay of complex determinations’ (Evelyne Andreewsky). Indeed, a country is a unique individuum, something indivisible, a territory-bound and history-moulded organization, a layered, hierarchically ordered, whole that, distinctly interrelated with its parts, constantly changes, sometimes turbulently. Having properties that each of its constituent subsystems lacks, and being a series of complex networks the pattern of which can be analyzed using the tools of graph theory, it is best viewed as an intersection of four fields: the geographic field, the individual-creative field, the socio-cultural field and the historic field: C = G ∩ I ∩ S ∩ H.

2) Its theory of human nature holds that the interests of the adult are best served by allowing him/her maximum freedom for choosing objectives and the means for obtaining them. This belief is based upon two assumptions: (a) each person is the best judge of his/her own interests and, granted educational opportunities, can discover how to advance them, and (b) the act of pursuing the chosen objectives contributes to the welfare of the society. 3) As general attitude, individualism subscribes to self-reliance, privacy and the right of the individual to be different from, to compete with and to get ahead of others.
