Constitution of modernity: reason, politics, religion


Looking backwards at mythology before the "birth of modernity", the COMOD LabEx studies types of rationale used by institutions and in practices of coexistence. This rationality, which stems largely from the scientific revolution, has established relationships between power and the people, States and religions, sovereignty, citizenship and expertise, and has been intricately formed over the last few centuries to culminate in the construction of a notion of citizenship, the principles of which seem to have achieved consensus, until recent decades. The current crisis facing this rationale requires us to return to its historical foundations, since only a new understanding of this civic framework, of its complex formation and 'the unthought', can shed light on its implications.
