Autoctono, cosmopolita e alloctono nella società multiculturale. Ipotesi per la realizzazione di tre ritratti
| STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2006 - 1
This article is part of a future research project on the figures of the autochthonous, cosmopolite
and allochthonous in multicultural societies. In defining three fields (history, society, instruction) in
which I will analyze the subjects of this work, I intend to produce two digressions for studying the
distinction between concepts of diversity/difference and multicultural/multiethnic. This will allow me
to analyze the autochthonous, the cosmopolite and the allochthonous in their relations with the language,
the food and the place. I consider the probability that these subjects are residual figures of
sociality without an effective correspondence to the facts. In multicultural societies the identities
could be redesigned respect to those primordial and to the expectative created by our way of thinking.
However, this outcome would be important to induce us to consider in a critical way our attitude
toward the citizenship concept in multicultural societies.
