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

L. Diotallevi, The world. That is: the evil of loosing time This paper is the result of an attempt to look for the “after” within the social realm, and of an attempt to take this challenge very seriously. Equating time to space is the starting point. Such an equating is also seen as a dramatic characteristic of the early modernity, of its phisics as well as of the state of its politics. Then assuming the luhmannian analysis of the path followed by the social differentiation during the course of modernization, up to the present primacy over that process exercised by the functional differentiation of the society, makes observable both the reapparaisal of the variety of temporalities and the planification and semplification of those temporalities planned and executesd by the egemony project of the state organization. So we are forced to account for the alternative remaining between saeculum – as paradigm centred on the variety of the temporalities – and secularization – as paradigm shaped on the abolition of that variety via spatialization –. Key words: society, social differentiation, space / time, Luhmann.

Leisure time giovanile e costruzione di capitale sociale: una rassegna digital

F.M. Lo Verde, Leisure time and the construction of social capital: a review The production of social capital in a specific area of everyday life such as leisure time and the different socio-cultural contexts it is experienced in is a very interesting research issue, especially in the light of certain specific meanings of the notion of social capital, such as Bourdieu’s or, more recently, Putnam’s. Nonetheless, this research issue is scarcely taken into consideration in Italy. Albeit inexaustively, this paper intends to introduce this issue starting from a brief review on the generation of social capital in youth’s leisure time contexts. In the first paragraph I problematize the notion of social capital as referred to leisure time “contexts” as well as analyze either the social capital literature dealing with the modes and experiences of leisure time, or the leisure time literature focusing on the construction of social capital in leisure time contexts. In the second paragraph I discuss some studies regarding the ways in which a particular age range – youth – produces social capital in leisure time contexts. In the third paragraph I focus on some studies regarding the issue of youth’s leisure time as a potential “antisocial” time. In the fourth paragraph I introduce the discussion about the little importance given to public leisure in the service provision for youth’s leisure time and the consequences determined by that in terms of social capital «erosion». The conclusion offers three metaphors for understanding the trends of leisure time and sociability. Key words: leisure studies; leisure time, Social capital

F. Antonelli - R. Castrucci, Intellectuals’ Molecularisation and New Technologies in the Network Society In this essay we aim at analysing changes in the role of intellectuals in network society. After discussing how intellectuals have been a social and political élite during the first modernity, functioning as intermediaries, and enabling hierarchical and asymmetric order in industrial society, the essay analyses the main factors towards disintegration of this social order: decline of philosophy of Truth, rise of postindustrial and knowledge economy, spread of higher education, development of mass communication, and thus of new media. These processes have stimulated the emergence of new social subjectivities, namely knowledge workers, which have set in motion powerful disintermediation processes through the internet. On the one hand, the classical function of intellectuals has been partially absorbed by mass media, and on the other hand it has been superseded by a multitude of intelligence and opinion niches directly produced by citizen-consumers (intellectuals’ molecularisation). The resulting landscape consists in a strong balkanization of social and political world – particularly along generational and educational lines -, where, on one side you find a composite set of extremely fragmented intellectualities swarming through the Net (citizen-consumers), and on the other side masses of people still depending on mass media intermediation mechanisms (citizen-spectators). Key words: intellectuals, new technologies, public sphere, knowledge, long tail

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.

Sé ed emozioni nell’interazionismo simbolico digital

P. Iagulli, Self and emotions in symbolic interactionism The idea which inspires this essay is to enquire on the place of emotions within what is probably the most «subjectivist» sociological perspective: symbolic interactionism. I will try to demonstrate that there was substantially no space for emotions in what can be defined «classical» symbolic interactionism, that of George H. Mead and Herbert Blumer: this is surprising, but only to a certain point. Symbolic interactionism began to thematize emotions starting from the generation of scholars that can be defined post-blumerian (Shott, Scheff, Heise). The reason for this «delay» is also cultural: this scientific field was, at least in part, a child of its time, i.e. the expression of an «emotional culture» which began to assert itself in a significant manner, especially in the United States, starting from the second half of the Seventies. Key words: self, emotions, Mead, Blumer, post-blumerian symbolic interactionism.

G. Toscano, Field and Social World. Definitions and applications in comparison The aim of this paper is to compare the notion of «field» by Pierre Bourdieu e the sensitizing concept of «social world» by Anselm Strauss. Bourdieu and Strauss start from different theoretical assumptions: the former from a conflictual conception of society, the latter from a Symbolic Interactionist perspective. Nevertheless, both their concepts share the same stance, as they avoid a knowledge of social phenomena seen as «things in themselves» and they both reject an image of society fractured into units lacking mutual relations. Furthermore, both concepts emphasize a constant feedback between structure and action and assume the point of view of social aggregates. The issue has been analyzed considering problems of field and world visibility and the definition of their boundaries. Key words: field, social world, symbolic interaction, visibility, boundaries.
