Chapter Summary

The description of the relationship between collective and individual responsibility in Ezekiel 18 and 20 takes place within the framework: the internal logic of these ideas on their own terms. In the description there is space for results of anthropological, sociological and psychological investigation, because the concepts 'collective' and 'individual' play a pregnant role in the three named areas of science. This chapter focuses on the question: whether the texts are directed toward the collective and/or the individual and in what way they do this. Discontent with the results of the development and shift of the discussion on the relationship between collectivism and individualism, which is dominated too much by theodicy according to Lapsley, she pleads for a reversal of the question about the approach from Ezekiel's anthropology.
