Personalizzazione dell’intervento e universalismo delle prestazioni: una declinazione agency struttura nella riflessione sul welfare state di Achille Ardigò

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


This paper highlights how the historical-sociological reconstruction of the birthand diffusion of the welfare state in industrialized countries carried out by AchilleArdigò in his essay Introduction to the Sociological Analysis of the Welfare Stateand its Transformations constitutes a milestone for the sociology of welfare. Theanalysis of the Italian sociologist’s considerations deepens the debate inherent inthe functions of care and control of the system whose phenomenology outlinesuniversalization of services and personalization of intervention. We argue that Ardigòsees the welfare state as a necessary modality for the life of developed societies.It is a social technology that contributes to the mediation between subjectivemeaning in life, essential for individual life, and social life meanings. This readingthus recalls the sociological debate declined as the agency-structure relationship.
