Abstract or Introduction
Individualism as a social theory is one that favors freedom of an individual’s action as opposed to having collective or state control. Many people would want to be granted maximum independence and be allowed to think and act based on their own conviction. It is in this regard that proponents of individualism theory will therefore find no meaning in communal rules and dictates as to the order of doing things.
This essay studies the topic of individualism and collectivism with the help of Sophocles' Antigone.
