A emergência do “moderno” conceito de revolução // [The emergency of the “modern” concept of revolution]

The text seeks to reflect on the emergence of what is considered the modern sense of the concept of Revolution, aiming to discuss the trajectory that passes beyond the traditional and circular meaning to the circumstances that made possible an analysis of the Revolution as a new era, distinct from the experiences of the Past In this sense, it is believed that the English Revolution of 1688 was central to this process. The way the eighteenth-century British reflected on the revolutionary events of the sixteenth century formed the concept, even before American and French events came to light. However, if it was an inspiration for modern revolutions, the seventeenth-century English sought to defend its political and social structure by extolling the conservative character of 1688, trying to differentiate itself from events in France that seemed to disintegrate every known order.
