Summary/Abstract: The article reviews some of the aspects of the so-called “insufficiency of democracy” in contemporary world related to the inconsistency between the term of democracy and the notion of it. In the attempts to understand and reconstruct democracy, the author proposes an exploration of ancient civilization because the issue of democracy raises the issue of culture and its understanding in the first place, especially in its historical and legal aspect. Just then comes the political will.A series of summaries and comparisons has been made between democracy in Ancient Greece and in Rome, between the perception of ancient traditions and models during the time of bourgeois revolutions and in the modern world. The author assumes that the historical and dogmatic knowledge was taken apart from democracy and from the republic and it was not discovered again in the science of law of the twentieth century.One of the current tasks of legal science and, more particularly, of Romanist science, is to restore in modern culture the knowledge of the democracy and of the republic in their ancient context and essence.
