ABSTRACT

This article analyzes the issue of generational change, reviews its conceptual and historical origin in Mannheim and demonstrates the relationship between generational cohorts and traumatic historical moments. The paper focuses on a new generation in Brazil, the “AI-5 generation” (1970), which was identified by Luciano Martins (social scientist), and subsequently reconsidered by Jurandir Freire Costa (social psychanalyst). It discusses one possible reinterpretation of the concept within the context of the internationalization and modernization of that period in Brazil.
