ABSTRACT
Notions of individualism and collectivism are present in many areas of social and political thoughts. Individualism and collectivism are based on different ideological values, which determine relation between individual and political system. In individualism individual is considered to be basic category of life – independent integrity. Each other greatest integrity than itself is recognized as set of individuals. Collectivism regards individual as a part of greatest social integrity, which determines its position. Antinomy between individualism and collectivism is rooted in two different political ideologies – liberalism and socialism. Communitarianism seeks to soften this contradiction in terms between individualism and collectivism.
