FROM COVENANTS WITH GOD TO SOCIAL CONTRACT

Abstract

Even the earliest societies have felt the need to adopt sets of laws to allow their own government. Although we start from an era in which not only the number of literate persons was reduced and even the material means of recording the legislation was even more limited, history has recorded numerous legislative codes since the antiquity. It is difficult to imagine a culture, anywhere on the planet, which has not known, since ancient times, various forms of understanding even though it has recorded different modes of normative expression. The indisputable necessity and applicability of such covenants and treaties also resides in their widespread, from Antiquity, from the political level to the level of relations between just two persons. Most of the covenants were not recorded on a support, the transcription of some by carving in stone, gave the chance of preserving them. It did not take long until man's ability to regulate social, economic, and political forms of organization has gone beyond conventional boundaries and man has received a covenant with divinity. The individual's agreement with society was just one step that, at least retrospectively, seems to be normalized. In time, the Humanity learned that any form of external constraint, be it religious or political-social, can only lead to diminishing, until suppression, of fundamental freedoms.
