LEON DONOSO, Abelardo. Modernity, city and subject: Approaches from the myth of the primordial father. Atenea (Concepc.) [online]. 2010, n.501, pp. 127-146. ISSN 0718-0462. doi: 10.4067/S0718-04622010000100008.
The present article deals with three categories that emerge as a result of the deep social changes that have occurred since the consolidation of the modern western world: mo-dernity, city and subject. The analysis takes up the Freudian Myth of Primary Father and upholds the thesis that modernity signifies a form of death of the father embodied in the figure of the absolute monarch, initiating the concept of social ties understood as State.
