In this article I consider whether the process of individualization inescapably disturbs
communal ties. This is an especially important question when we consider social changes
in Central Europe 25 years after the political transformation My deliberation follows
the main ideas of Norbert Elias, presented in The society of individuals. He argued that
the development of human communities is heading towards integration on human-wide
level community. The question is, how do communal ties change during this process in
Central Europe.
