Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses self-ordering society. Order may be used to ground ideas of value with a view to modifying willing and acting within a given society. A society is by its nature self-ordering in the sense that society is creating itself as both structure and system and are the continuing process of ordering; a society's socializing through the struggle of the total social process is an ordering, as society seeks ceaselessly to resolve perennial dilemmas of society; society forms its constitution and creates social power in the form of legal relations; social consciousness itself is by its nature a self-ordering of society as it transforms the reality of all-that-is into a reality-for itself; and society is ordering itself in seeking its prosperity and well-being.

Keywords:   self-ordering, society, order, ordering, socializing, dilemmas, constitution, legal relations, well-being
