Trans-Generational Regime of Late Capitalism: Introducing a new Sociology of Generation

Wiesław Wątroba


The article attempts to revise the perception of the issue of generations which dominates in social sciences at the moment. It is also a critical review of the interpretations of the category of a generation, and of fixed periodization of subsequent generations. Additionally, a new sociological definition of this term, based on the transgressive character of generational breakthroughs, has been proposed. The generations which characterise the reality of late capitalism have been indicated based on this definition.
