  Article Content


Integralism is a belief that society is an organic unity. It has a characteristic belief in social hierarchy and in co-operation between the classes. Often seen as a belief in "blood and soil[?]" conservatism, Integralism claims that the best political institutions[?] for given nations will differ depending on the history, culture and climate of the nation's habitat. Integralism usually strongly supports a national church, or Erastianism[?].

Integralism often overlaps with fascism (especially in Latin America) although there exist many natural points of disagreement, especially the integralist stress on localism[?].
