This chapter examines Green's metaphysical and political defence of extreme harmony. It is argued that Green's theory of moral personality and his claims about the role of the common good in self-realization provide the resources for his best defence of the sort of corporate agency required to maintain extreme harmony. It is shown that Green's most interesting and plausible arguments for corporate agency do not support the demands of extreme harmony.

Keywords: T. H. Green; moral personality; common good; self-realization; corporate agency
