By Barry Shain. Published 2000. ISBN 9780718716202



Detailed Description

Since its founding, America has been regarded by many as a land of individualism. Scholars have historically observed a close relationship between individualism and Protestantism, but Man, God and Society argues that the foundations of modern individualism are found rather in Catholic theology. Shain examines this intellectual confusion and the misunderstanding of the meaning of individualism that it has bought about.
