Summary/Abstract: The paper analyzes to what extent Slobodan Jovanović's early writings already contained the postulates of his political theory. Jovanović's early writings indicate that his original theoretical interest was primarily tied in with politics and, thus, political. The paper attempts to demonstrate that it is precisely the early writings where answers to the questions of his thought's development could be sought. While the earliest works could trace certain alterations in Jovanović's viewpoints, there are no special novelties in the following period of his scholarly activities, marked with the theory of state. It is rather a deepening and elaboration of the already adopted basic principles of his own theory of state, systematized in his main work, The State.
