The article discusses the issue of the anthropological foundation of democracy. The Author criticizes the thesis of J. Rawls - or rather a certain interpretation of his thought - that defines democracy as a simple formal procedure, preferring the view that democracy is a system that is based on a substantive content (philosophical and / or Religious). The author identifies the content of values (for other accepted also by Rawls, if interpreted more thoroughly than usual) in a precise anthropological principle: the idea of man as a «person free and equal» and therefore with absolute value . After showing how this idea, which is of Christian origin, has the character of «concrete universal» and is universally available, the conclusion is that a democratic political system can not survive without an adequate moral foundation. This does not mean abandoning completely the formalization procedure that, after having removed its claim to absoluteness, is used as a principle of universalization of a precise anthropological content.
