The Quest for the Self

Philosophy and Theology 2 (4):374-386 (1988)
Abstract
This article offers further exploration of themes first presented in Habits of the Heart. Following an analysis of Tocqueville’s critique of social and political individualism, I examine more positive views of individualism in the writings of Emerson and several contemporary thinkers. The closing section deals with the concept of individualism as it emerges in contemporary American society. This paper is a revised version of a talk delivered at Marquette University in the fall of 1987
