Descrizione e critica del mondo sociale

due compiti della Documentalità

Venanzio Raspa

pp. 143-162

The paper examines the constitutive rule of the Documentality (object = written act), its explanatory power, and the role that writing and relations play in it. The social object is explained as a hybrid object, of higher order, consisting of heterogeneous parts; its identity is determined, amongst other things, by the relations it entertains with other entities. In the second part, after criticizing Searle’s notion of collective intentionality, which fails to explain conflict situations, the article focuses on some political implications of social ontology, examining the role of immigrants sans papiers.
