<political philosophy, ethics> doctrine in political, or ethical, philosophy which holds that the individual's actions should benefit some kind of wider organized group to which the individual belongs, e.g. the members of a certain profession, the state, a community, etc., rather than the (just) the individual himself. Collectivism in political theory can depend on altruism in ethics. There are many forms of collectivism in political reality, such as tribalism, communism, socialism, certain forms of trade unionism, authoritarianism, totalitarianism, communalism, and so on. Collectivism is a rather technical term, and is not used very often in everyday language. (References from communalism, communism, Hegelianism, holism, individualism, Platonism, socialism, and totalitarianism).
Based on [The Ism Book]
