Summary/Abstract: In the theory and practice of socialism two basic concepts of realization of the idea of socialism were formed. First realization of this idea, formulated by K. Marx and his continuators, is so-called dictatorship of the proletariat. The second, the non-Marxist’s idea, one of its creators was a Polish philosopher E. Abramowski, in the dictatorship of the proletariat sees a danger of totalitaria-nism and thus the negation of socialism. Socialism in the latter approach was perceived as a society of free people realizing their goals by the means of democratic changes. The author of the article advocates a version of the implementation of the socialism expressed by E. Abramowski.
