Abstract

The document (courtesy of L'Harmattan-Italia for the Italian and of IEPALA for the Spanish version) analyzes the reasons of the rediscovery of the notion of civil society that has been observed in the last few decades of the XX Century. After an analysis of the history of the concept from XVIII the century, the debate bloomed in the 80s and 90s is examined. Several extensions of the conceptare also mentioned and, above all, the difficulties faced in fixing useful criteria to find a correct definition of civil society.
