BOOK 2, PART 2, DIVISION 1, CLASS 3, CHAPTER 1

Of Civil Society

As civil society is a somewhat complicated conception, it may be useful, in the first place, to consider the nature of a society in its simplest form. This chapter will, therefore, be divided into two sections. The first treats of the constitution of a simple society; the second, of the constitution of civil society.

Section 1. The constitution of a simple society.
Section 2. The constitution of civil society.
