Research output: Book/ReportBook


[automatically translated] The "crisis" seems to be the leitmotif of the speeches that are undertaken in the daily social actor, whatever the role that these plays in different social systems, which increasingly feels he belongs. Sociology is reflecting not only on economic and social crisis that characterizes the historical moment we are experiencing, but also, and especially in recent years, on the same crisis that is going through as a discipline. If on the one hand, in fact, it is recognized by many, not without some notes critical, the ability to have a statute and a role "inside" the institutions, the task seems more and more difficult is rather classic, to understand and explain social reality. This volume aims to highlight how some objects, some processes and some problems inherited from modernity - such as those involving the production of physical and social space and how this will decline according to categories which will certainly not new, however, allow you to interpret the dynamics of change, such as the categories anchored to sociology formal Simmel (social distance, marginalization, as well as sociability "controlled" by the new postmodern fears). These forms whose declines sociability are not just objects on which sociology can be measured in order to understand how some social changes are present in contemporary society, is also a place of comparison to reflect on the current status of the discipline.
