The founders of the nation were very serious when they prepared for the establishment of the Indonesian state.

The main question of Dr. KRT Radjiman Wediodiningrat as the head of the Investigating Committee for the Preparation of Independence (BPUPK) was about the most basic issues. What will be the ideology of an independent Indonesia? Not all of the 66 BPUPK members gave comprehensive and in-depth answers to such a fundamental question. Soekarno, Ki Bagus Hadikusumo, Abikoesno Tjokrosoejoso, Muhammad Yamin, Soepomo and Mohammad Hatta were among those who provided basic thoughts on Radjiman's question.

According to Soekarno, Indonesia required a philosophische grondslag (philosophical basis) or weltanschauung (worldview), namely "fundamentals, philosophy, profound thoughts, souls, desires, upon which the building of the Independent Indonesia is established eternally”. Meanwhile, for Soepomo, Indonesia was not just a "physical body", but a "soul". Indonesia has an existence, in which its "soul" and "body" must be built as stated in the verse of the national anthem "Indonesia Raya".
