Cmmunitarianism as a competiting and critical discourse of liberalism has been one
of the most important contexts of ethical and political philosophy in the recent years.
The weaken of traditional forms of community such as family and increasing of
divorce and decline of families, expanding the uncommom religion and the taking
drug in the Western countries had been the social backgrounds of this discourse.
Communitarinism by the principle of second Wittgenstein critics the belife of the
contemporary liberal theorists. Unsutiated conception of human being, a social
individualism, universalism, objectivism and ethical neutrality are the main liberals’
positions rejected by the communitarian theorists. The central and substantive point
of this critique is the liberal conception of human nature that so much of
controversial positions refer to it.
