Individualismus est status moralis, philosophia politica, ideologia, vel conspectus socialis quae morale hominum singularium pretium exprimit.[2][3] Individualistae suis propositis et desideriis exercendis favent, et ergo libertatem et fiduciam in se magni aestimant,[4] suadentes studia individui studiia civitatis vel gregis socialis maioris momenti habere,[4] cum illa effectui externo in unius studia a societate vel institutionibus sicut respublica ipsa impositam adversantur.[4] Individualismus totalitarianismo, fascismo vel collectivismo saepe opponitur.[5]

Beniaminus Tucker, anarchista individualisticus Americanus, qui oeconomicam exprimebat, quam vicissim socialismum anarchisticum appellabat,[1] cum in mutualistica Petri Iosephi Proudhon et Iosiae Warren oeconomica staret.
Aemilius Armand, anarchista Francicus auctoritate gravis.
Anscharius Wilde, Hibernicus motus degeneris scriptor, anarchista, et homo bellus clarus.

Individualismus individuum exprimit,[2] et ergo "in propositione individuum humanum maximi momenti in luctatione liberationis esse" incipit.[6][7] Liberalismus, existentialismus, et anarchismus sunt exempla motuum qui hominem singulum habent pro praecipua explicationis re.[7] Individualismus ergo implicat "ius humanum libertatis et effectus sui."[8][9]

Vocabulum individualismus adhibetur pro appellatione quae significat "Qualitatem individui exstantis; individualitatem,"[4] ad possessam "individui proprietatum; proprium" pertinens.[4] Individualismus ergo cum artificiosis et bohemianis studiis et vitae propositis consociatur ubi individuum se creare et novas res experiri solet, contra traditionem vel sententias et mores populo gratos,[4][10] et similiter in philosophicis humanistarum argumentis et ethica.[11][12]

  1. Tucker ait: "the fact that one class of men are dependent for their living upon the sale of their labour, while another class of men are relieved of the necessity of labour by being legally privileged to sell something that is not labour. . . . And to such a state of things I am as much opposed as any one. But the minute you remove privilege. . . every man will be a labourer exchanging with fellow-labourers . . . What Anarchistic-Socialism aims to abolish is usury . . . it wants to deprive capital of its reward" (1972:404).

Another humanist trend which cannot be ignored was the rebirth of individualism, which, developed by Greece and Rome to a remarkable degree, had been suppressed by the rise of a caste system in the later Roman Empire, by the Church and by feudalism in the Middle Ages."

  12. "Anthropocentricity and individualism. . . . Humanism and Italian art were similar in giving paramount attention to human experience, both in its everyday immediacy and in its positive or negative extremes. . . . The human-centredness of Renaissance art, moreover, was not just a generalized endorsement of earthly experience. Like the humanists, Italian artists stressed the autonomy and dignity of the individual.""Humanism," Encyclopædia Britannica.
