Overview

"This is a stimulating book." —Choice

"... with its rich historical and cultural detail draws us again and again into the fine webs of everyday life that defined eighteenth-century society and the idea of civil society therein." —William and Mary Quarterly

In this sequel to 'Civility and Society in Western Europe, 1300-1600, Marvin Becker treats the rise of civil society in England and Scotland and the shift in human sociability from familiarity toward impersonality, from public toward private, from social solidarity toward self-interest.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Becker (history, U. of Michigan) continues his study of the interior life of Western culture begun in his book Civility and Society in Western Europe, 1300-1600. He traces the decline of the medieval conception of society and the emergence of a new view based on self interest and privacy. He analyzes the writings of Descartes, Pascal, and leading figures of the 18th-century Scottish Enlightenment, and shows how the cultural changes from an archaic to a commercial social model called for new approaches to ethics, human nature, and politics.
