Modernity: yesterday, today and tomorrow modernity can be assigned as a set of experiences gifts in day-by-day, joining the species human being. A unit of desunidade, in constant change, search of the new. To be modern is to be part of a universe in which, as Marx said, ' ' everything what it is solid preparation of manioc meal in ar' '. She has years, many people have faced modernity as a radical threat to all its history and traditions. The modernization manipulates and dirige all the people and institutions, in an ample, universal concept.

The urban life, race, with in such a way what to make and little time to carry through. It has something always new, a new idea, a new system, the faster discoveries comes each time all the moment. The history of modernity can be divided in three phases. The first phase occurs at the beginning of century XVI, where modernity so is not noticed, it is not valued and it does not possess a great public. In the second phase, in century XIX, modernity gains life and public. This public is in search of something more, but without leaving the life of before. He is to live a new experience and at the same time to be imprisoned to the past, bringing to tona the idea of modernismo and modernization.

In century XX, ours third last phase, the expansion of modernity is universal, varied languages, a multitude of fragmentos, one everything in one all. Jean Jacques Rosseau was the first one to use the word moderniste, calling whirlwind, this social eddy. It is the agitation and turbulence, as many new features that the proper individual forgets who it is. The modernity of century XIX is marked by a technological environment directed toward the urban life. In the manifesto written for Marx, we perceive the definitive vision of the modern environment, for the means of production, the current consumerism.
