The article presents a draft programmatic exposition of political philosophy, which demonstrates the author’s vision of the key preconditions of the existence of this political discipline. The author proceeds from the thesis saying that political objects become such as a result of their being endowed with political meanings by people’s actions correspondingly oriented, and politics, consequently, is exactly the specific kind of people’s spiritual-practical activities creating certain objects as political and, equally, the boundaries and the structure of the sphere of public life, within which politics realizes itself.
