This question already has an answer here:
I know there are words like outcast, pariah, ostracized, leper, etc. to describe someone who is shunned by society. I’m looking for a word to describe someone who rejects society and lives detached from society.
Furthermore, I thought of hermit but there are religious connotations to the word and while I am aware that it can be used to describe what I said I would prefer a word with a more neutral connotation. Also, I don’t want to limit myself to just a noun for this. Adjectives or verbs that can be used to describe voluntary detachment from society work as well.
