On the Nature of Civil Society
By Charles K. Rowley
This article appeared in the Winter 1998 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

What makes civil society civil? Contemporary thinkers in search of principles and institutions that promote social harmony should look to classical liberals such as John Locke and the younger John Stuart Mill, who best articulated the case for limiting the scope of government—and hence allowing private associations of individual citizens to flourish.
