This chapter discusses civil society in practice, looking at academics and educational work after 1905. It examines voluntary associations and popular enlightenment, the movement for people's universities, and higher education in non-governmental institutions. Educational work made up an important part of society-sponsored activism, reflected by the growth in the number of associations created for that purpose after 1905. The three various aspects of education — basic education, enlightenment, and moral education — were a part of the overall project of civil society. The post-1905 era then witnessed a significant increase in the non-governmental institutions of higher education. However, the revolutionary opponents of civil society dismissed these educational efforts generally as merely attempts to strengthen the emerging capitalist system.
