This article discusses the use of certain guiding concepts to think about relating to the specificity of politics. Specifically, exploring the relations between the metaphors of order and division relating to the concept of democracy in the works of Georges Sorel, Joseph Schumpeter and Jacques Rancière. In this regard, the use of formal structured schemes in binary oppositions are considered in order to contemplate about the specificity of politics; and it is affirmed that the relation between order and division becomes paradoxical and contradictory, as politics inhabit an undecidable terrain.
