Abstract
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: modernity, 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.
