Dalle ‘classi sulla carta’ alle micro-classi professionali: una rilettura delle classi sociali in prospettiva neo-Durkheimiana

Stefano Poli


The limited heuristic capability of the “class” concept, particularly when defined in a neo-Marxist approach, stresses the need for unconventional analyses of social stratification, allowing new perspectives on the increasingly complexity of different factors generating the contemporary inequality. The contribution, starting from the re-elaboration of Durkheimian theories proposed by David Grusky, suggests a more disaggregated perspective of social stratification according to a model of professional micro-classes, more based on the technical division of labour and less oriented towards the construction of macro-aggregated classes, traditionally defined by researchers according to socio-economic gradients, but nowadays less and less socially perceived by the actors.
