Anti-individualism is an approach in various areas of thinking and philosophy. These areas have in common the view that what seems to be internal to the individual is to some degree dependent on the social environment. Thus, self-knowledge, intentions, reasoning and moral value may variously be seen as being determined by factors outside the person.[1]

The position has been supported by Sanford Goldberg,[2] and by other thinkers such as Hegel, Hilary Putnam and Tyler Burge.
