About The Book

This book is the reconstruction of a critical theory of modernity. ‘The Theory of Modernity’ is divided into four parts: freedom, equality, solidarity and responsibility. The first three follow the basic ideas of the constitutional revolutions of the 18th century.


"Domingues discusses classical topics...in philosophy and sociology...and transforms them in a way that brings new and actual insights giving the subject his own style and character." Dr. Hauke Brunkhorst, Professor of Sociology, University of Flensburg, Germany.
