Identità, differenza, relazione. Un confronto tra Heidegger, Luhmann, Donati digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2017 - 1 | anno: 2017 | numero: 1
Why compare Heidegger, Luhmann and Donati? Is it possible to analyse the nature of the «relationship» in order to rethink the concept of the person’s identity in Sociology? To rebuild the identity of the relationship, is it useful to draw a clear distinction between being and the body? In this case, would the distinction be one of «evolving»? But what is meant by the concept of evolving? Is evolving a relationship that separates that which joins, joining that which separates, establishing a connection (religo) between what «is» and what «is not»?

P. Donati, The Relational Subject: Definition and Examples In ordinary life, we, qua individuals, often speak in the plural by referring to a ‘We’. People say: we had lunch together, we went on holiday together, and so on and so forth. Usually, this ‘we’ is a term whose referent remains unspecified and serves only to indicate which people were involved in an event. Philosophers and social scientists agree that the ‘we’ cannot be a simple aggregate of individuals who are supposed to share an idea, action or a purpose. There must be more than that, but when they try to give an explanation of what lies behind the ‘we’, they also differ greatly in how they account for it. It becomes essential to reach a clearer and sounder view of what constitutes the ‘we’ as a social subject. The Author claims that most current explanations of the ‘plural subject’ are both ill-founded and inadequate for the job and puts forward an alternative sociological theory, which introduces the concept of the ‘relational subject’, as a more complex and robust concept of what a ‘we-subject’ is. Key words: relational subject, reflexivity, we-relation, relational goods, relational sociology
Globalizzazione e welfare: fra mercificazione e demercificazione digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2009 - 1 | anno: 2009 | numero: 1
Present globalization processes seem to bring along them new modes and levels of commodification of welfare services and policies. Sociological researches show how and to what extent welfare practices and interventions are more and more treated as market commodities instead of being conceived as provisions sensitive to the social and human dimensions of people’s needs. The Author’s thesis is that such a trend is not only due to the neocapitalist character of globalization, but more properly to the ‘lib-lab configurations’ of welfare regimes. These configurations, as different as they may be, are producing the widespreading commodification of welfare, much more than avoiding it. The theory of reflexive modernization does not grasp the issues at stake. In order to understand how advanced societies can (and as a matter of fact) produce the decommodification of welfare provisions, we need to resort to a relational analysis and evaluation of social policies combined with a more sophisticated theory of social reflexivity. The decommodification of welfare is actually brought about by social practices sustained by what Donati calls ‘reflexive relationality’. We can observe it at work in those social spheres that Donati calls ‘social private’ and third sector organizations, as actors of a new civil society.
Verso un paradigma personalizzante delle istituzioni sociali digital
formato: Articolo | STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2006 - 3-4 | anno: 2006 | numero: 3-4
On the basis of relational sociology a new paradigm personalizzante (?) of social institutions is outlined here: it links the reformulation of AGIL and M.S. Archer’s erergenziale (?) paradigm asserting that the person emerges in the interaction with social institutions that precedes and exceeds. In the actual new globalized context, the comprehension of the relation between the human person and the institutions passes through a change of the classical model of socialisation.
