Beginning with the question of the logic and aporias of modern representation – from the genesis of sovereignty to democratic constitutions – the essay discusses the theoretical structure of representation according to Eric Voegelin and the latter’s critique of Carl Schmitt. In this regard, the necessary relationship with the idea implicit in representation and the relevance of the reference to Plato are brought into focus. On this basis, some reasons for the crisis of modern democracy are spelt out. The task that comes to us from Voegelin, beyond his political proposal, is to think about the order of society in a way that is different from the state-form, in such a way that it does not contradict the structure of representation as an experience of transcendence.
