Conceptualization of Political Community
The design and contents of the article consist in analysis of political community as one of the basic notions of political science, latently present in quite a number of other political-science and sociological concepts and possessing considerable instrumental value not only for empirical analysis of political change and stability, but also for normative determination of questions of political research. On analyzing interpretation of this notion by F.Tцnnies and M.Weber, as well as its modern explications, the author comes to the conclusion that political community is a specific particular form and method of self-organization of individuals who get associated for achieving common ends and construct their mutual relations on the basis of concord, in dimensions of social communities and poli-tical-legal systems.
