The theme that I explore in this paper concerns the multiple linkages between knowledge, civil society, governance, and democracy. I could place this general set of questions into the context of whether or not these linkages are co-determined by an enabling knowledgeability of modern actors and stress the growing chance for reflexive cooperation in civil society organizations, social movements, and the increasing influence of large segments of society on democratic regimes, but my specific purpose has to be more modest. Access to and the command of knowledge is stratified. I will explore three barriers and hurdles to access to knowledge and ask: (1) is it possible to reconcile expertise and civil society; (2) it is conceivable to reconcile civil society and knowledge as a private good; (3) and finally, are the social sciences and the humanities a source for enabling knowledge?
