Re: Individualism primers...

Nietzsche carried with him everywhere a copy of Emerson's essays. His book
_Joyful Wisdom_ (a.k.a. _The Gay Science_) opens with an epigraph from Emerson.
Since Emerson was the great 19th-century prophet of American individualism, his
works might be an excellent point of departure for your student.
