Abstract


  • A few months before the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Mexican poet

    Octavio Paz was proclaimed at a crossroads uppercase: praising the modernity

    as a blessing or regret it as a curse. This dilemma was paradoxical

    that peace in both professed an almost mystical commitment by the modernity:

    that is a destination: if Mexico wants to be, will be modern, stated (Peace,

    2003: 57). Such an assertion requires some additional explanation, especially if

    we take into account that modernity is a theoretical concept extremely

    debatido. What peace I wanted to say on the threshold of the last decade of the twentieth century

    was that Mexico should successfully implement the ideals of the Reformation and the Enlightenment,

    this is the aspiration to a rational knowledge, the secularization of

    norms and values, the moral autonomy, democratic self-determination and the State, otherwise perish crushed under the weight of their unresolved problems

    of violence, corruption and inequality.
