M. ESPOSITO, Achille Ardigò and the «Sociology of Composition». The challenge of the humanization of Information and Communication Technologies in the Health System.
The article aims to highlight the «compositive» vocation of Sociology of Achille Ardigò,
especially in the field of humanization of Information and Communication Technologies in the
Health System. This beruf finds expression in the continuous and uninterrupted references –
not only from a theoretical and axiological point of view, but also in a heuristic and applicatory
sense – to a sociology based on key words of: composition, cooperation, complementarity, compatibility, connection. This Sociology may finally realize the Homo Civicus of the modern society, in which high subjectivity and high level of existential significance are fully realized, and that constitutes the entire realization of the concept of “person”. The rationalization of the Health System doesn’t mean, according to Ardigò, a de-humanization of the relationship and the networks, but on the contrary the Information and Communication Technologies, and especially the Web, must be used in a complementary and subsidiary way, so that relations between operators and clients, patients and their families could be further improved and appreciated, in a «social utilization» of the new technologies.
Key words: new technologies, person, composition, humanization, networks.
