DEVIAZIONI. DEVIANZA, DEVIANZE, DIVERGENZE

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

[automatically translated] "Normal", "satisfactory", "lawful." Once it was possible to understand and study the deviance through these definitions. Categories that appear today more than ever obsolete, as opaque and elusive show themselves to the social sciences the new categories that should go to replace them. Here we talk about contemporary society, the de-structuring, hybridization, multiple legal systems, overlapping. The daily interactions draw from regulatory maps whose source is composite, heterogeneous, woven and therefore ambiguous. Just the physical intersect, spatial, cultural of the various orders and regulatory frameworks and the varied representations of the regulatory highlights how, more than before, we are living in a juridical networks that often force us to transitions and transgressions. Which does not mean it's missing the difference between normal and deviant, but it seems legitimate to ask "what normal is still normal," "what is still deviant deviant" or, you allow the paradox, "as deviant is (yet) normal". As claimed by Schneider in the introduction, "deviance can not be understood as a response to the plaintiff's legal norms, but must be understood as a choice, or a reaction between a multiplicity of possible regulatory systems". It is the intent of the book and this is the direction that research should move: towards the need to re-define semantically sociology, giving science a new language that provides them with the means to keep up, not to lag behind the rapid transformations that mark our time. This is an onerous task but to which we can not escape, because only accepting the need for a revision will finally be possible to see how far we can speak of normality and deviance and understand well the processes that characterize the gears of our society. Is there still a difference between normal and deviant? These definitions are sufficient today facing a hybrid society and multiple? A book which requires a reflection and a reconfiguration of what is commonly meant by the "control concepts," "deviance" and "crime." because only accepting the need for a revision will finally be possible to see how far we can speak of normality and deviance and understand well the processes that characterize the gears of our society.
