In order to deal with the relation of psychoanalysis to modernity and individualism, in order to explore the possibility of using Lacan's teaching that leads to existence and the body in the discussion of contemporary political questions, we begin with a debate about the community proposed by Political Philosophy, with which we question the "being-in-common" and the "nothing-in-common". Then we find Lacan and the thesis that "the unconscious is politics". With it, we begin to use the Master's Speech to think the One, the Significant Master in the position of agent of the social bond. From there, the contemporary master shows us the domination of economic issues, not just political ones. In short, a formulation coming from Sociology, characterizing as singleness the modernity of the eighteenth century and as uniqueness the modernity of the nineteenth century, will give us passage to articulate the Lacanian thesis, "the unconscious is politics", to the existence and the body.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; modernity; individualism; community; singleness.
