Description
In this critical study of "civil society", Christopher Beem explores the concept from its historical origins -- principally in Tocqueville and Hegel -- to contemporary intellectual and political discussions. He argues that while the goals of a civil society are laudable, people also need politics to provide a sense of shared values and ideas. Taking up the arguments of Robert Putnam, Michael Sandel, and others, this timely book offers a corrective for all who are too willing to undervalue or dismiss the role of politics in cultivating a moral society.
