Abstract

The article presents the authors’ approach to defining the problems of interaction of the private and the public in the political sphere of society. The authors proceed from the idea that the most important political phenomenon - the state - possesses its own sphere of privacy, the admittance to which is closed for anyone who hasn’t passed special selection. The state has a sort of its own body inaccessible for the glances of the uninitiated. The beginning of the formation of the private sphere of the state, according to the authors, falls on the period of Enlightenment, on the moment of final formation of the idea of the state’s sovereignty which is an equivalent of the «private».
