Abstract: 

Public interest is one of the fundamental concepts of politics, law and morality. However, as a result of the various uses of the concept and theoretical controversies arising from those uses, the meaning of the concept is not clear. In this paper, we shall deal with the meaning, characteristic features and instances of the concept. This approach is based on a basic presupposition: public interest is the common interest of all members of the society. Indeed, public interest is the "interest of the collective life". Therefore, public interest relates to the basis and very existence of the collective life and, hence, is of a collective, minimalistic (minimum requirement of justice), instrumentalistic and morally indifferent nature.
