Reinterpreting Individualism and Collectivism: Their Religious Roots and Monologic versus Dialogic Person-Other Relationship.
Sampson, Edward E.
American Psychologist, v55 n12 p1425-32 Dec 2000
Examining religious roots of individualism and collectivism and seeing them as defining alternative conceptions of the person-other relationship reveals close links between Christianity and the former and rabbinic Judaism and the latter. Dominant Christian views have framed debates on individualism-collectivism, defining options available for person-other relationships. The rabbinic tradition's dialogic and formative view provides an alternative perspective. (SM)
