Can you give an illuminating example or two of how an individualist or a collectivist would act differently?
In my simple understanding of it, it's not clear to me how there isn't a straightforward false dichotomy happening.
Isn't it in the interest of an individual that the collective they're part of flourishes? and isn't it in the interest of the collective that the individual flourishes?
in what sense do individuals even exist? (I'm pretty steeped in the idea that we're all multiplicities and we don't have clear points where we begin and where other things end)
and while I'm here, (I'm not sure if it's even related), what's are einzige about?
I'm happy for you to just tackle one point! Perhaps the first question is most important. Looking for thought-through answers, preferably :)
