Abstract: This essay discusses the ideas of a societal generation through five Finnish generational movements of the intellectuals. The essay shows that although the ideas of societal generation can be a fruitful way to approach cultural-historical phenomena, it has its problems. The main difficulty in applying the theory stems from the fact that since the concept of a societal generation is modern, it can be problematic to apply it to the generations before the 1920s as well as to late-modern generations. Another challenge in using the theory lies in the fact that becoming a generational movement presupposes the self-consciousness of coevals as belonging to a generation in order to become one.
