381 Words 2 Pages
The speech “My Individualism” is spoken by Natsume Soseki when he first time visits to Gakushuin. In his speech, he mentions that the individual should not be erased from the nation. The nation cannot be defined by individualism or nationalism because both of them are the same, and there is no difference between individualism and nationalism. He claims that the relationship between the individual and the nation should be interactive. He indicates that many people think of individualism in bad for the nation because it will eventually tear the nation apart. However, in Natsume Soseki’s opinion, the idea of doing everything is for the nation is a wrong concept. Although the nation is important, people cannot concern themselves with the nation
