In the present article the authors based on the analysis of the existing scientific literature critically examine different approaches to the solution of theoretical and methodological problems of the state-adjusted history structurization, offer their vision of the theory of evolution of the state organization of society. In particular, the subject of analysis in the article is the theory of Johan Goudsblom, Karl Popper, R. Nisbet, Marx, Engels and others. The paper argues that the evolution of the state as a political institution is caused by the necessity of solving the society problems, which require the development and introduction of qualitatively new management resources. Evolutionary aspect of management resources stands for the differentiation of the structural components of the state and their regulatory integration. At the same time functional and organized state embodies the type of activities that meet the needs of society for self-preservation and purposeful organization. From the perspective of the authors, each new evolutionary phase of development of the state as a political and legal institution is not only a more efficient way of performing old functions, but also the emergence of new, enhancing opportunities for the development of other structural components of the state. All this contributes to a new system of functions and the formation of a new historical type of a state.
