Abstract
The conflict between perfectionism and the neutrality of a liberal state is one of the burning issues of contemporary liberalism and political philosophy as a whole. The paper examines the roots of the perfectionist as well as neutralistic thinking, which are found in the philosophies of Immaneul Kant and John Rawls respectively.

The aim of the paper is to show the basic difference between the above mentioned conceptions, which in the long run appears to be an anthropological one
