Duties to Man, as a Member of Civil Society

To ths class belong the duties of magistrates and citizens. As these, however, would be but imperfectly understood, without a knowledge of the nature of civil society, and of the relations subsisting between society and the individual, it will be necessary to consider these latter, before entering upon the former. I shall, therefore, attempt to explain, first, The Nature and Limitations of Civil Society; secondly, Government, or the Manner in which the Obligations of Society are Discharged; thirdly, The Duties of Magistrates; fourthly, The Duties of Citizens.

Chapter 1. The Nature and Limitations of Civil Society.
