Part of the Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy book series (SEEP)


A series of radical political changes in East-European nations after the fall of the Berlin Wall renewed the discussion of the concept of ‘ civil society’. Around the same time in Asia, headed by South Korea and Taiwan, the movement toward democracy formed a wave overturning or transforming authoritarian governments. The march of liberal democracy was accompanied by the promise of prosperity under the capitalist market economy. Francis Fukuyama declared the final victory of liberal democracy and predicted a new era dominated by the ‘ last man’ that is rational as well as apathetic in everything.1
