Mikhail Bakunin: some traits of the thinker’s image
The article contains general characteristics of M.A. Bakunin as a political thinker and a philosopher. The author of the essay considers Bakunin as a great thinker whose works contain certain prophecies, as a representative of ideas and processes relating to global integration of the human civilization, as an outstanding mouthpiece of revolution acted as an occasionally repeated phase of development in the historic human evolution. The article mentions that Bakunin’s criticism carries danger to a person hided in the phenomenon of the state and finally contributes to the development of the state, its modernization and formation of bodies relating to institutes (i.e. law) protection, human rights and freedom. This criticism favoured working out some modern theoretical and constitutional doctrines, political institutions intended for the control of negative potential of the state and encouragement of its positive activity.
