Collective forms in the social organization of daily living
So far we have been concerned with the principles that have formed the basis of mainstream Western society — British society in particular — over recent centuries, together with the competing (collectivist) principles that revolutionary and reformist political activists have championed as alternatives. More specifically, the central issue of the book is concerned with how the application of those collectivist principles, themselves the basis of a complete sociopolitical philosophy, can be applied in the private domain in order to overcome the separation between the public and private domains that familist ideology seeks to maintain. A basis could thus be established for the wider application of collectivist principles, especially in relation to the provision of care for dependent members of society.
