make them possible. The balancing of private and public interest can only succeed if spaces ex- ist that allow for both their subsistence. Hester’s experience of the flood of sunshine and her dissent will create such a space and lay the foundations of forest-freedom in a theocratic town. THE SCARLET LETTER AND THE OPENING OF FENCES | 81 2.4 THE RECUPERATION OF MERCY AND THE FOUNDATIONS OF CIVIL SOCIETY The Scarlet Letter as civic myth is not a narrative about an American family.

Ukraine is de- termined to a significant extent by the dynamics of literary development”, since it is by “returning a historical and ethical sense of time to one’s na- tion” (Paсhljovska 2014: 476) that literature participates in the construction of identity and the development of civil society. Be that as it may, for all their importance the themes of nation building and history do not obscure the novel’s main attribute – its deeply individual and humanistic pathos, first and foremost – thanks to the subtle psycholo- gism of the narration of the aged Jakiv

Brzozowski and the Italians | 147 But in the thick night of darkness enveloping the earliest antiquity, so remote from us, there shines the eternal and never-failing light of a truth beyond all question: that the world of civil society has certainly been made by men.21 In his New Science Vico traces the entirety of knowledge, understood here as the social world (with its logic, morality, economy, politics, physics, astronomy, chronology in the sense of history and geography), back to poetic wisdom that he

organised gay liberation movement were detectable in Western Europe. His lifestyle was not only unsavoury to ‘civil society’, but also to other homosexuals, who did not identify with Crisp’s open effeminacy. This led to him being excluded from the heteronormative community as well as from its homosexual subculture. The above excerpt exemplifies Crisp’s sarcasm and sharp humour when disclosing his excluded position and his unwillingness to conform to social standards. Moreover, Crisp’s auto-biography denotes an often disengaged attitude towards the Second World War

sustainability, with a rainbow alliance of government, civil society and businesses devising novel strategies for increasing human welfare within planetary limits, on the other hand, the evidence is that global human enterprise is becoming rapidly less sustainable and not more. (Adams, 2006) Many sustainability scholars agree that our current UN-based framework for sustainability on which businesses, academic institutions, municipalities, and internal policy setters most often rely, is inadequate in application to the size, magnitude, and complexity of the pressing

words, fictions of business were attractive to these scholars due to their utility: they could teach different topics in business and management departments such as business ethics by using fictions of business. The Cold War ended decades ago and we live in a quite different world today, where it is easier to lead creative discussions about the motif of business without talking about Cold War dichotomies such as liberalism, capitalism and com- munism. This major change in the geopolitical situation and civil society has opened up a new and less fraught space

Als Trägerin der Souveränität figurierte also die Nation, nicht das Volk.92 [Kur- sivierungen im Original]“ (Schönemann 1992: 323) 91 „The breakdown of corporate ties meant that both within state and civil society there was a new emphasis upon people as individuals rather than members of groups. […] A society of individuals was simultaneously defined as a polity of citizens. […] This
