Learning Objectives

It comes to analyzing the basic concepts of social relations within the existing societies based on market logic. Therefore, even with the help of a text as important as that of L. Gallino, we will try to provide students with latest data and present the concept of flexibility, now more than ever at the center of production processes.

Program

The course is divided into two parts.

In the firs part we will analyze the philosophical anthropology of Gehlen. Man appears as a being poor of instinctsand devoid of a natural environment. The opposition between the enviroment and world refers to that between animal and man. For Gehlen, culture becomes the " second nature" of the man. So, if the animal lives in the enviroment, man exists in relation to a world of symbols. In gehliana view the concept of "generic creature" takes the form of plasticity that enables man to open up fully to the world.

In the second part it will be taken into account culture in its "liberal" form. The bourgeois individual, as a person, realizes himself in front of the others. Each has its own individuality to be manifested in the comparison-difference with other individuals. From here the recognition of merit and hierarchy of rewards. Then, the idea of a " non liberal society" in which every individual has its own individuality, but it is not evaluated by others. This hipothesis is of some importance starting from the emergence of the capitalist economy. Here, in fact, every social processes takes ?a quantitative form. Next to this aspect emerge new ?cultural phenomena as experiences of social solidarity ?that develop with modality of very different nature in respect of the objectives of a monetary economy. In this regard we will considered paradigms of sociological theory: the difference between conformity and deviance, and the difference between health and disease. To those who have the opportunity to attend classes will have, during the course, given texts and readings that will be useful to deepen, in agreement with the teacher, the subject exam.
