Micro - meso - macro: la social network analysis come insieme di tradizioni e programmi di ricerca digital
Anno: 2012
S. Vergati, Micro – meso – macro: social network analysis as a set of research traditions and programs The article analyses first the disciplinary and epistemological contexts of SNA; after, it compares the different theoretical approaches referable to SNA: the structural, the formalist, and the interactionist one. Then, two main methodological approaches are being compared: the «hard SNA» and the «soft SNA», the first one – typical of the micro-analysis -- which considers the relational structure as the goal of research; the second one, which uses relational data as a tool for the theory building at the meso and macro levels. Further, SNA is proposed as an interdisciplinary and multi-purpose way-out from the theoretical dualism holism vs. individualism, particularly according to the structural interactionist approach. Finally, the four different explicative theories integrated in SNA (the theory of weak ties, the theory of the structural holes, the theory of clusterness, and the theory of relational coordination) are discussed as middle-range theories. Key words: social network analysis, micro-meso-macro level, structural interactionism, methodological individualism, holism.

Le aspettative da dimensioni soggettive a fattori dell’azione sociale digital
Anno: 2010
The concept of expectation allows multifold applications in the social theory and in the social research as well, as individual and social expectations are implicit reference concepts of social action. The article proposes to turn social expectations to better account as motivational and explanatory factors of individual and collective attitudes and behaviors, and shows the usefulness of expectations as a tool for overcoming the opposition between objective and subjective concerns in the empirical sociology. An application of expectations has been done in an empirical research about university students and their parents. The multidimensional data analysis shows that juvenile expectations come out in part from an intergenerational construction process, that the different clusters evaluate differently the achievement, and that expectations are determinant factors of motivations and social action, whilst the concept of self-esteem is being scaled down. Key words: young, expectations, motivations, self-esteem, achievement.
