Identità individuale e processi di globalizzazione
| STUDI DI SOCIOLOGIA - 2004 - 3
The instability suffered from individuals depends, in most cases, on the continuous changes of
society and on the effects of new technologies used for any work areas. These factors involve thousands
of citizens’ lives, modifying their habits and social relationships. Because of these reasons, the
crisis is now no longer a transitory fact. Actually it is difficult to thing about a stabilisation from
which the subject can draw out his own identity in a consolidated social function. Moreover, by considering
the change as the probable constant in the future, the subject will have to find out a sense
and his own feeling of belonging. So he will have to live with it, building in this change his own story.
We can talk about the emancipation that puts the subject into a sort of an endless research of his own
identity, that is a tension towards the rediscovery of values able to give a meaning to the actions, recognizing
his identity among the others with which he has to live.
