Authors:  MARIUS JUCAN.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Transition proves to be an expanding field of interest, today. Out of the numberful issues concerning transition, the author of this paper chose to deal mainly with the concept of transition, as it was stated especially in the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, during a span of time regarded as foundational for the theoretical articulation of the concept, as well as for pragmatic policies of transition as "Europenization" or "Americanization". Starting from a hermeneutical approach, the paper focuses on the various theoretical premises resulting in different interpretations of transition. Transition is shown as being closely interrelated to the idea of modernity.
