This paper takes civil society as the research object, and analyzes it in combination with China's national situation and specific practice. Through relevant research, this paper holds that the development of civil society can be judged by the development degree of social organizations, citizens' subjective consciousness and ideological deviation under the guidance of deconstruction. At the same time, this paper also tries to clarify the boundary of civil society: normative information is the perceptual boundary of citizens, orderly activities are the rational boundary of the media and the overall will is the unified boundary of the country. Finally, this paper thinks that we can build a civil society by tapping the power of the state, carrying forward the mainstream values and breaking the dualistic separation between the state and society.
