The objective of this paper focuses on elucidating how modernity has transformed the status of depression according to its discursiveness. Depression exhibits specific symptoms that elementally can be a problem in the clinic if left undetermined, since a disorder cannot be tackled without the social axis in which it appears, where a symptom appears is where the relationship of a problem has to be made. Clinics need to enable the social and cultural field to account for the effects of modernity on psychological disorders.


Depression, modernity, clinic, symptom, melancholy.
