A Theoretical approach to the contradictory role of the cultural feeling of love in the inequality of the Spanish woman

Juan A. Roche Cárcel

Abstract


 

The "becoming" has replaced the "being" as the main category in European thinking. In philosophy, the awareness of this triumph of the becoming has ultimately given rise to two main paths, drawn by Kant and Hegel, respectively. So much so that sociologists, despite our attempts to move from the philosophical reading to the sociological one, are also forced to think about permanence and change in our research object. That dispute between structure and change, so complex and possibly endless, is deeply and inseparably linked to the one that opposes structure to action, another traditional sociological debate. After all, changes are driven by the significant actions of individuals that determine the success or failure of the transformation, as well as its scope, through the interaction with social structures. Our sociological tradition has equally taught us that we must also bear in mind that socio-cultural structures are visibly full of fractures, diverse change rates and contradictions. For all these reasons, my intention here is to explain that the situation of women in Spanish contemporary society, the object of the present study, can be better understood in the light the context of the debates on the link between structure and change and between structure and action. of the two debates mentioned above and the contradictions that they present.
