Contemporary liberalism is unfit to take into account the questions originating from the rise of the so called «risk society». In particular, contemporary liberalism has three main problems. The problem of liberty, of (free) trade and of law. First, the concept of negative liberalism is insufficient in the era of global ecological risks. Second, the social organization is not reducible to the global market. Third, common sense transforms itself in ideology. In sum, the main limits of contemporary liberalism have to do with an obsolete between human and non-human association and the maintenence of a cleavage between internal and external nature.
