La idea de que el antagonismo no es tan solo un componente ineludible de la vida social y politica sino que tiene un valor normativo, es decir, que debe ser estimulado y reconocido tambien por las instituciones politicas es tributaria, en Mill, de su lectura de las obras de Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) y Francois Guizot (1787-1874).
