[Autom. eng. transl.] The chapter within the Manual of Sociology focuses on the sociological currents that access the study, understanding and explanation of social life starting from the consideration of the human being as an 'acting subject', as a social actor, an active subject in shaping to society. Among the classical sociologists, Max Weber and Georg Simmel are the main exponents of this perspective. Over the course of the twentieth century, various currents of thought, and various authors, albeit from different angles, take up the centrality of the acting subject, inserted in a context of significant social relations and interactions.
