Abstract:

After an analysis of the classical community theory and modernity ad vanced by Ferdinand Tonnies, the article concludes that while the concept of co mmunity in the present context is intimately related with the community referred to by Ferdinand Tonnies?, they are not to be equated with each other as there are substantial differences between them, and it is of no avail to postulate the functions of the traditional community are the very objective for the construc tion of the modern community.

Key words: community, modernity, take off the land community, community construction
