moral stance, political philosophy, ideology, or social outlook that stresses "the moral worth of the individual".1 Individualists promote the exercise of one's goals and desires and so independence and self-reliance2 while opposing most external interference upon one's own interests, whether by society, family or any other group or institution.
Transcendentalists believe in INDIVIDUALISM and reject society's expectations but rather act independently.

Top Definition
the philosophy that the individual is significant and superior to any collective becuase it is the individual and not the collective that holds all rights and is the source of all those rights given to him/her by the one true God or by the fact of their existence. Individualism is congruent with egoism (the celebration of the individual for his efforts and abilities) and is wholly against altruism (the abasement of an individaul for all that he/she is to some other form).
