Abstract

The author returns to the question of phenomenon of power. In his opinion, the main object of current researches in political science is not the essence power as such, but forms of power, its institutional structures etc. In other words, the problem of essence of power, of its ontology is reduced to investigations of forms of its realization. Giving attention to the wide spread of «magic» practices of direct control of political behavior, the author poses the task of constructing an initial classification of ontological aspects of wielding power, which would be based on criticizing purely rational models of human consciousness.
