MUCH MADNESS IS DIVINEST SENSE
Madness is divinest Sense –
To a discerning Eye –
Much Sense – the starkest Madness –
’Tis the Majority
In this, as all, prevail –
Assent – and you are sane –
Demur – you’re straightway dangerous –
And handled with a Chain –

Social solidarity is a concept (form of action) that has to be related to changes in society in order to define an overview of how different socio-cultural processes are interconnected and how they permeate all elements and actors that are – in different ways – related to social solidarity. The overall objective is to provide a picture of the dynamics and challenges – in relation to social solidarity – that evolve due to the continuous changes in society, in a repeating circle. The idea is, therefore, to constitute a reflection on solidarity, which, beyond the individual declinations of this concept, allows us to explore the processes that take place on different levels (individual, social and cultural) for individuals whenever they interact with other individuals or with societal structures.
