Individualism

"Romanticism cultivated a reverence for the individual. It eschewed the Enlightenment focus on universals for a focus on particularities. The romantic movement highlighted the differences, as opposed to the similarities, between peoples."    - Kelly Douglas Brown ; Stand Your Ground; Black Bodies and the Justice of God (p. 16)


"More embedded in popular Christianity are the hermeneutics of privatism. Fundamentalists and modern existentialists may be philosophically antagonistic, but they share in an essential commitment to approaching the text [Bible] with concerns about the individual's search for, respectively, 'holiness' and 'authentic existence.' Conversion is a fundamentally individual affair. The 'personal Savior' of American evangelicalism is domesticated and no longer Lord of the world, but of our hearts, into which we invite him."    - Ched Myers ; Binding the Strong Man: a political reading of Mark's story of Jesus
