The last decades of 20th century are marked by two simultaneous processes: planetary attempts to reach democracy, i.e. the conflicts around establishing democratic systems, and fears for the future of the mankind caused by the environmental crisis. In such a situation the question of political power is actualised in the conceptual as well as in the historical and practical sense. This, of course, is actualising the problem of nature as well, or natural environment, as the field of showing the political power. Complex understanding of the problem is not, however, possible without the re-construction of the power in period of the modern science and the epoch of forming the political sphere of the modern society. Following this analytical logic, the article attempts to show the entanglement of techno-scientific power and political power, as well as their levels and antinomies at the age of rationalisation. The author also attempts to answers to the question: which are the main features of the structuring of political power over the nature at the time of the technical and scientific progress and democratic constituting of the political will.
