Sociological research today does not make originality a prerogative, but rather influences future developments that will in turn impact sociological thinking. The technological changes that took place in England in the second half of the 1700s and the subsequent birth of major urban centres represent the elements of interest for the first sociologists and the prevailing focus of research. The positivistic studies by Auguste Comte and Émile Durkheim reflect the bourgeois post-revolution French situation, while Karl Marx’s studies stem from the birth of classes within society and Max Weber’s socio-historical reading is an expression of capitalistic modernity.

If we consider the social practices of the construction and attribution of meaning, we see how social action becomes an element that in some way imposes change within the social structure. It is individual and collective behaviour that generates the elements that constitute society (Berger & Luckman 1966). The construction of subjects as individuals within society occurs through the phases of socialisation during which the individuals internalise the norms, values and meanings of the context of reference; this occurs in a first phase (primary socialisation) through relationships with parents and family, and in a second phase (secondary socialisation) in peer relationships, at school and at work.
