National Socialism and Particularism

Return to Home Page


These are just some rough notes for the time being. My basic premise is that National Socialism is a particularist philosophy and that the Third Reich could not have been replicated elsewhere.

Liberalism

German liberalism is different to English liberalism. German liberalism is about the development of the German political system away from Catholicism and includes a process of secularisation (separation of church and state).

English liberalism was more about the relationship between the state and the individual and emphasised personal freedom and the subservience of the state to the individual.
