The essay presents the main constructionist research perspectives on the subject of suicide. Constructionist sociologies - and, in particular, symbolic interactionism, ethnomethodology, phenomenology - have brought about the reckoning with positivist approaches.The essays analyzed offer a very interesting summa of the original ways in which constructionist sociologies have re-imagined the study of suicides by going beyond the rigidity of the "causes and cures" scheme of positivist approaches and enriching ourunderstanding of the phenomenon. Faced with a sociological panorama for which the study of suicide is still synonymous with Durkheimian analysis and statistical data, the texts offered in Italian translation illustrate the methodological and interpretative inventiveness of constructionist sociologies and their ability to illuminate unprecedented aspects, among all the socially constructed nature of suicides and the individual's ability to project meaning beyond death.
