Concepts of democracy are reinterpreted by the author within the frameworks of the theological and of the organic paradigms. He has recourse to vast historical and sociological argumentation to substantiate the conclusion that democracy (civil self-government) on the local level is the natural condition of social organization, which provides efficient economic and cultural development of community. While considering modern Russia’s prospects, the author asserts that the new generation, as more disposed to responsibility, will pave the way for the country to civil self-government and political democracy.
