In the understanding of eras for the study of history, the modern era follows the medieval.  Typically, this era is considered to begin in the late 15th century.

Formational ideas include the enlightenment, secularism, the state, the reformation and the rise of mass manufacture.  A subspecies of modernity can be understood as ‘post – modern’, which has an emphasis on subjectivity of experience and positivism.
