The paper is an attempt at a definition of a common ground with its immanent potency as the founding force of various forms of the world common to all people. Its first part gives a brief outline of the conceptions of this common ground in the history of European thinking, such as Platos' case. Cusanus' community or joined unity and Whiteheads' creativity. The second part derives from these conceptual schemes, reflecting on the domain of potency as the dynamics of being and the ground of the original continuum, as the ultimate determination, in which the founding force of social forms of being has its roots.
