In the paper the author deals with some social-philosophical principles (the Voice Movement) used in forming the ideologic conception of agrarianism in Slovakia at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, with the view to the ideologic conception of its chief proponent Milan Hodža in particular. He critically analyzes theoretical approaches of Hodža to some groups of problems, especially Hodža’s idea of the unique nation, humanity, nationalism, peasant’s question, refusal of the class struggle etc. Special attention in the study is given to the critics of agrarianism standing on the platform of Marxism-Leninism, in particular to V. Clementis and L. Szántó.
