Abstract

The passage from modernity to post-modernity deeply upset the group dimension, and, consequently, personal identity itself. Transformations involving the entire planet, socio-anthropological changes our society had to cope with are producing a change in the dynamics of identity formation and the appearance of new psychopathological figures. The loss of cohesion of the sense of belonging and the weak internalization process of the elements which form the individual identity (cultural, linguistic, religious traditions…) draw an essentially uncertain and temporary existence. Drawing on some themes of subjectual group analysis theory of personality, the article proposes the concept of dis-identity as key to read ongoing psychic changes.
