Summary/Abstract: The problems dealt in this study are problems of political philosophy and practice. In the study is developed some new theoretical proposals as well as some interpretations of political doctrines of the past. The study is analytical in character and are devoted to definition and elaboration of theoretical ideas, most especially the one of two conceptions of unity. The study consists of the concept of two traditions in political thinking, conversational turn, egalitarianism (epistemological, moral and political), and the idea of agonistic democracy. These ideas are supplemented here by distinction between two concept of unity, interpassivity, and the idea of the constitutive role of antagonism for (our understanding of) human nature, society and politics.
