La liquefazione del padre. Passaggi di stato e trasformazioni educative

Valeria Rossini


The essay analyzes the evolution of the paternal identity in the society and in the family, starting from the key distinction between paternal function and paternal role. We explore the issues of responsible paternity, and the need of a co-responsibility between mother and father to enhance the parenting and promote a positive adult-child relationship. In addition, we underline the necessity that the pedagogical reflection focuses its attention on the unique and irreplaceable bond that ties father and child to investigate not in opposition or for analogy with the maternal-filial one. Finally, it appears particularly urgent the focus on the difficulties that in the flesh fathers live in their liquid fatherhood, trying to understand and forgive its dispersions.
