[Autom. eng. transl.] As the name suggests, the relational paradigm considers help (and the resulting well-being) as a largely imponderable process emerging from well-intentioned social relations. From this definition the ethically oriented nature of social work stands out, understood as a profession that accompanies the "free doing of good" in human societies. The key concept of the approach is a non-intuitive idea of social relationship as it was elaborated in sociological reflections of Donati (2010; 2011) and transversally in all the main human sciences, in particular in philosophical reflections (Lévinas, 1961), economic (Sen, 1980) and anthropo-pedagogical (Illich, 1973; Nussbaum, 2006).
