[Autom. eng. transl.] Relational sociology, or "relational theory of society", formulated for the first time by Pierpaolo Donati in the eighties of the twentieth century, defines a "society" (for example the family, an association, an institution, the global society) as set of social relations, which distinguish the form and contents of each specific "society". This Lexicon was constructed with two main objectives: to focus on the key concepts for a theoretical foundation of sociology starting from the recognition of the original character of the social relationship; enucleate the methodological principles and tools consistent with the theoretical and necessary premises to operate empirical relational analyzes that respect social differentiation. The voices contained in it exemplify empirical applications regarding different areas of social life: from cultural processes, family dynamics, social policies, citizenship, the third sector, within the framework of a corporate morphogenesis known to relational sociology to capture crucial innovative aspects, such as the emergence of the private social, relational goods, and corporate citizenship.
