Разнообразие нормативных проектов гражданского общества
The history of civil society ay be considered as component of a broader ovement in the European intellectual history related to the search of a "better" society. The episodes of this history are accumulated gradually together with the formation of the Europen society pattern. The study of this process should put some questions. The most important among them is the question whether it is possible to understand this cultural movement as a formation of a unified social and political concept or as a coinage of alternative interpretations describing the ways of harmonizing relations between society and state. The paper should be viewed as an attempt to find an answer to the question.
