ARENDT, Ronald João Jacques. Social psychology, community and contemporaneity. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 1998, vol.11, n.1, pp. 135-145. ISSN 1678-7153. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79721998000100008.
The purpose of this paper is to discuss some unexpected cosequences of naive acceptance of community terminologies. Starting from post-modern sociologist Michel Maffesoli conclusions, the paper attempts to evaluate the contributions of anthropologist Marc Augé and philosophers Jacques Rancière and Michel Serres about contemporaneity and ecological sensibility and its relations to the community subject, and it suggests that those analysis should be incorporated in social psychology , avoiding, at the same time, th engagement in conservative thinking.
