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
