Comunicazione interculturale e analisi sociologica: come e perché? digital Comunicazione interculturale e analisi sociologica: come e perché?
Anno: 2006
This essay concerns some new concepts that can help sociological theory interpret globalisation and multicultural societies. Its key-concept is intercultural communication, largely used in communication studies, studies on intercultural relationships, and linguistics. The essay proposes an integration of a sociological theory of communication with some of these studies, explaining and analysing the different forms of intercultural communication which can give a more precise meaning to the processes of globalisation and to multicultural contexts. The historical background of these processes and contexts is the expansion of modern European society, which is interpreted as functionally differentiated, following Luhmann’s social systems theory. In contrast with the dominant forms of ethnocentrism which have continuously shaped intercultural communications between the functionally differentiated European society and the other societies in the world, new theories propose a form of intercultural dialogue. The meaning of such a dialogue is defined in two versions, transcultural and cosmopolitan: the comparison between these versions enlightens their different features and problems. Finally, the reasons for a sociological interest in these theories are discussed, with reference to explanations of globalisation and multicultural society.

Oltre il Panopticon? Foucault e la videosorveglianza digital Oltre il Panopticon? Foucault e la videosorveglianza
Anno: 2006
Foucault’s figure of the Panopticon has exercised a considerable influence over the surveillance studies in the past decades. The article explores, both theoretically and empirically, the applicability of the Foucault’s Panopticon to the practices of public video surveillance. In particular, the paper aims to understand if the metaphor of the Panopticon is still useful to explain contemporary surveillance.

Amici per guarire: i Gruppi Anonimi dei 12 Passi digital Amici per guarire: i Gruppi Anonimi dei 12 Passi
Anno: 2006
This article presents a case study that considers a particular self-help mutual-aid group: Alcoholics Anonymous. On the empirical level, the research is conducted through the partecipant observation method. Starting from a briefanalysis of these types of associations, both from the point of view of their evolution and from the point of view of the sociologists, the author tries to analyse how the Twelve Steps groups specifically work and what their cure method consists of. This study aims at demonstrating how the recovery method used in these groups (and in general in all groups that use Twelve Step Programs) could be considered, to every extent, an effective alternative therapy.

La società come istituzione digital La società come istituzione
Anno: 2006
A key point in the researches on institutions is the place they have in the social system. Especially sociology wonders which institutional shape is emerging in the contemporary society. This paper looks through the meaning of ‘institution’, and then the social evolution of institutions, by underlining the contributions of sociology, law and economics. State and society are part of a complex link, in which State plays a subordinate role.

Verso un paradigma personalizzante delle istituzioni sociali digital Verso un paradigma personalizzante delle istituzioni sociali
Anno: 2006
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.

Morfogenesi e riflessività. Alcune condizioni per parlare sociologicamente delle istituzioni digital Morfogenesi e riflessività. Alcune condizioni per parlare sociologicamente delle istituzioni
Anno: 2006
Through the fundamental concepts of habitus and reflexivity, the author analyses both the heuristic role and the limits of Margaret Archer’s work for the maturation of present sociological theory and for the change of the way in which the sociology studies the institution. In fact, the relative dependence between the reflexivity of the internal conversation and the reflexivity of the structures lets the sociologist choice between an “institutional” perspective and a theoretically autonomous and specifically scientific perspective.

Intorno alla genesi delle istituzioni. Le domande della tradizione sociologica e l’elemento drammatico del processo di riforma digital Intorno alla genesi delle istituzioni. Le domande della tradizione sociologica e l’elemento drammatico del processo di riforma
Anno: 2006
Through the analysis of sociological thought of Durkheim, Weber and Spencer, the author focuses on the complexity and dramatic element of the modern institutional process, which has these characteristics in the phase whether of institutionalisation or of de-institutionalisation. So this suffering process, which has its last meaning in the value, can not be reduce in its explanation in analytic schemes which have a mechanistic nature.

Mutamento e istituzioni: alcuni esempi critici digital Mutamento e istituzioni: alcuni esempi critici
Anno: 2006
Economic and social changes and common values shift involve a parallel change of institutional structures. But institutions are often very hard to change. This difficulty can be remarked by analysing three topics: first of all, the subsidiarity principle and local agencies in the European governance; then, political power and public administration in Italy; finally, the relationship between European parliament and political parties.
