Ultrastabilità e indifferenza. Centri e periferie nella società moderna digital Ultrastabilità e indifferenza. Centri e periferie nella società moderna
Anno: 2005
Contemporary society is often described in terms of regional inequalities in addition to distinctions such as development/underdevelopment or modern/traditional. These territorial differences, however evident, serve as obstacles for sociological descriptions of modernity. This paper introduces the hypothesis that every observable difference (for instance economical, political, educative or even individual) is the product of the modern societal system as a whole. Modern society, which is based on functional differentiation, is at the same time hyperintegrated and loosely coupled, totalitarian and tolerant to local deviation. In the words of the early cybernetics: it is ultrastabil. The only requirement seems to be the compatibility between local structure and the main societal structure. From this point of view, in order to observe the territorial differences of contemporary society it is crucial to choose adequate sociological distinctions. For this purpose, the current research offers distinctions like: evolution/pianification, risk/danger and inclusion/exclusion.

Alla ricerca della forma. Considerazioni sociologiche sul concetto di formazione digital Alla ricerca della forma. Considerazioni sociologiche sul concetto di formazione
Anno: 2005
The article deeps concepts of socialization, education and formazione. Particularly, the essay focuses on the analysis of education and formazione as idealtypical concepts inside a sociological field; the formazione is mainly understood as a composition of cognitive processes that complete and structure educational development. Therefore, the paper tries to investigate the model of action having the aim of «form». It suggests to conceive «form» through the pattern of the text, and «formative action» in the sense of an act of reading a text. Although the text evokes the image of a totality, nevertheless it doesn’t appear anything fully exaustive; on the contrary, it always takes the shape of bond, project and «excess».

Le rappresentazioni sociali della prostituzione nella stampa quotidiana digital Le rappresentazioni sociali della prostituzione nella stampa quotidiana
Anno: 2005
The article presents the results of a research aimed at outlining, through a formal and content analysis of the press, the social representations of prostitution and of the actors involved in it. Four Italian newspapers over two different periods have been analysed. The research is based, on one hand, on the psycho-social theory of social representation and, on the other hand, on the sociological reflection about the role played by mass media in influencing social construction of reality. The results are read with the purpose to put together, in an idealtypic way, the fragmentation of the journalistic production in the three dimensions constituing a social representation (information, representation system, attitude). The degree of interconnection between the press and the dimension of the social representation has been highlighted. Prostitution is shown as an authentic press topic: the informative dimension of the social representation is strongly modelled by the media system’s needs. The phenomenon includes a wide representational system – which central nucleus consists of the idea of deviance –, and alternatively creates open and closed attitudes, according to the point of view adopted for its thematisation.

La traduzione italiana di «Chiesa e Stato in Russia» di Max Weber digital La traduzione italiana di «Chiesa e Stato in Russia» di Max Weber
Anno: 2005
The article presents the Italian translation of the chapter “Church and State in Russia” from Weber’s Bourgeois Democracy in Russia (1906), with interesting remarks on Orthodox Church and tsarist autocracy, Russian Orthodox hierarchy, Old Believers and sectarian movements, “white clergy” and “black monks”, Christian Social movements and Orthodox doctrine. In The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism (1904-1905) Weber had studied social and economic role of puritan worldly asceticism in the development of western capitalism, and defined the puritan believer as God’s instrument to fulfil His will. In this essay, in a comparative way he examines Russian spirit and relationship to the divinity and to the world, Orthodox believer’s ethical and social ideas; so Weber describes Orthodoxy as worldly mysticism, which searches mystical contact in spite of a modest acceptance of the world. According to Weber, this apolitical and anti-individualistic attitude would not have supported the development of bourgeois and liberal ideals in the struggle for Duma and constitutional monarchy in Russia.

Il piacere della violenza. Esposizione televisiva, gratificazioni del pubblico e pratiche di fruizione digital Il piacere della violenza. Esposizione televisiva, gratificazioni del pubblico e pratiche di fruizione
Anno: 2005
Why is there violence in mass media? This question has two aspects. The first one regards the choices, the motivations and the strategies of the producers, i.e. all those people – journalists, authors, directors, those in charge of the programming, pressure groups – who, with different capabilities and at various levels, influence the making or the diffusion of the contents. People who produce or broadcast violent contents act on the basis of particular expectations regarding the preferences of the audience, yet they cannot force anybody to switch on or to be interested in violence on television. For this reason it is of particular interest to analyse the audience’s motivations. This is the other aspect of the question, that one of the addressees. Do violent messages attract the audience? If so, why? Which type of audience, in what conditions and in what contexts? What kind of satisfaction and gratification does the audience, that voluntarily exposes itself to violent messages, actually gain? This paper aims to investigate why the addressee is attracted by programmes, whether of news or fiction, containing violent messages; reasons that may have nothing to do with the «pleasure of violence». An additional aim is to analyse how different practices of exposure to and consumption of the television violence can influence the processes of decoding and interpretation, and so, in turn, affect individuals and groups.
