Personalism is an intellectual stance that emphasizes the importance of human persons. Various conceptualizations have been explored, so personalism exists in many different versions, and this makes it somewhat difficult to define as a philosophical and theological movement. The term “personalism” has been used in print first by F. D. E. Schleiermacher in the last year of the 18th. century.. The idea can be traced back to earlier thinkers in various parts of the world.
