PEREIRA, Heloisa C.  and  STENGEL, Márcia. Life projects in Post-modernity: possibilities and limits to the young. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2015, vol.21, n.3, pp.582-598. ISSN 1677-1168.

This article discusses the theme of life project, considering the Postmodernity temporal dimension. The projects are part of our lives at every step, however in youth this theme becomes more relevant because there is a social requirement that young people have to define some paths in their lives. We discussed the project and its own term, explaining your senses, concomitant the bibliographical study on youth, with key authors such as Melucci, Pais and Dayrell. We present how Modernity and Post-modernity impact on man's vision to project. We raised issues experienced by young people, pointing to factors that help or disfavor the construction of the projects, facing the scenario of changes, marked by uncertainties where are teenagers, whose transition to adulthood is not defined as once was. They need to create short-term plans and develop strategies to address this reality, as well as elaborate responses to making exits to unpredictable future

Keywords : Life project; Post-modernity; Youth.
