BERTOL, Carolina Esmanhoto  and  SOUZA, Mériti de. Transgressions and adolescence:: individualism, autonomy and identity representations. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.4, pp. 824-839. ISSN 1414-9893.

This work attempts to approach adolescence as a concept constructed throughout modern age and that has now gained great importance in human sciences. Thus, in a contemporary background, this concept is shared socially, producing knowledge and delimiting practical processes that exert influence in the subjective configuration of those who share this social net. Psychoanalytical and psychosociological references are used to analyze the predominant representations of adolescence in western and modern societies and the relations between these representations and the accomplishment of the ideals of freedom and autonomy of the individualistic society. Specifically, it analyzes the attribution of transgression and revolt as inherent characteristics of adolescence and the incidences of these attributes in the accomplishment of these ideals.

Keywords : Adolescence; Identification; Individualism; Transgression.
