Informations and abstract

Keywords: Security; Political Concept; Modernit; Global Age; Risk.

The essay reflects on the security's concept and on its transformations between modernity and global age. In the first part the Author traces the modern and contemporary genealogy of the concept, going over its primary stops (from Hobbes to Locke, from Montesquieu to Declarations of the rights, from the New Deal to the totalitarisms). In the second part, the Author both inquires into the twists which the concept undergoes in global age and questioning on the democracy' transformations in view of new risks and fears.
