Sounds a bit like a polarity: two virtues in tension with each other. Here: The freedoms of individual self-determination vs the benefits of adopting the embedded competence of a culture?

If you haven't come across these yet, have you read Kegan's developmental stages (socialized mind, etc.). W/ caveat that this is often used as a totem for folks to posture with. The original work is good, though! A bit like Mazlow's hierarchy: the pop culture version is so watered down it may as well be homeopathy.
