Description:

We certainly live in a world of profound social change. Basically, it is enough to take a look at any history book we have at hand to see that the world is, at present, what our ancestors could never have imagined it would be. But what does change mean? Is it auspicious to consider ourselves modern? If so, when exactly did modernity appear? Certainly the number of authors who have approached the question of modernity is at least in the thousands, but we must think to what extent we deserve this right to speak of “us” the modern and “they”, the non-modern.
