Learning Objectives

The aim of the course is to enable students to acquire advanced training on the theme of social institutions, with specific reference to the analysis of the different meanings with which this concept was used in the social sciences, particularly in sociology. The evolution of relevant social institutions will be examined, with particular reference to the family and marriage, in their relations with legal and political institutions. Particular attention will be paid to the theory of social institutions and to social integration through law. On the basis of the acquired knowledge, students and students will be able to develop analytical skills regarding the contents and characteristics of social and institutional change.
The acquisition of this knowledge will allow students and students of the last year of the master's degree course to verify their cultural interests and better define their study preferences also in preparation for the thesis.

 

Program

The course starts from a recognition of the contributions of sociology to the study of social institutions, conducted with a wide recognition of the most relevant contributions produced by sociological reflection. An in-depth study of the theory of institutions will be developed, understood as intermediate social formations that lie between the individual and society as a whole.
The theoretical vicissitudes of the study of institutions, with particular reference to their relationship with social integration, will be presented paying particular attention to the positivist-functionalist current, starting from the origins of sociological thought with Auguste Comte and then retracing Emile Durkheim's conceptions, Eugen Ehrlich, Niklas Luhmann and Talcott Parsons, which will be directly examined the main written in the subject .. It will be highlighted how in all these authors the study of institutions has helped to highlight the integrative function of law, both as an answer to the problem of social order, and more recently, in relation to the inclusion of minorities in contemporary pluralist society.
The course will end with a specific study of a fundamental social institution, marriage, which in Western countries has experienced rapid and dramatic changes over the last few decades.
