This chapter discusses an alternative conception that is traceable to Athens and Jerusalem and which stands in stark opposition to the modern glorification of sovereign power, totalizing ideologies, and abstract procedures. It introduces Walter Lippmann, the author of The Good Society and pursues his argument in greater detail to see precisely how he wanted to obviate modern ills. It looks at a more recent reformulation of the idea of a “good society” and finally explores the implications of these initiatives in the present era.

Keywords:   sovereign power, Walter Lippmann, good society
