Not only individual commonalities and differences have a social origin, but also the presupposed given of individuality itself, as a phenomenon possessing historical and social specificity. As Geertz (1973) has pointed out, among the world's cultures this notion of a bounded, unique, more or less integrated unity is quite rare and is confined exclusively to societies of the particular type that we inhabit in the particular epoch in which we find ourselves (cf. Gadlin, in press). What appears to us to be the natural dimension of development is, in fact, "second nature" -an acquired morphology that only imitates exclusiveness and necessity.
