The paper presents the phenomenon of the liberalism as a political and legal doctrine, in connection with the social utopia. Firstly he tries to show that liberalism simply as such, as well as its different varieties, contains elements which might be considered utopian. Studies on the definition and essence of liberalism as well as on its different types are to confirm that liberalism, since its beginnings is tightly connected with the idea of freedom and with the attempts of empirical definition and next practical application, contains elements typical of social utopia. Secondly, they are to prove the existence in modern political-legal discourse related to the functioning of democracy, the so-called liberal variety of utopia, which is considered more and more frequently as something as a matter of fact unaccomplished or unachievable in practice.
