does modernism still exist? moreover, did it exist as a universal phase or just as a reality for some human groups? how are its contradictions expressed to the inside of the various nation-states? to what extent this period contributed to strengthening the subject autonomy? which conceptual category is the most accurate for the current state of affairs? posmodernism, second modernism, demodernism, liquid modernity, or other? and who is the subject of the current technological context? the virtuality of relationships signs for a new kind of individualism which reveals itself on the individual rather than in the communal. this may be, however, an appearance which hides a new social project whose main features are still to be unraveled.
