La delimitación sociológica de la juventud

Brunet, Ignasi; Pizzi, Alejandro
Abstract:
This paper addresses the conceptualizations existing about the sociological category of youth. Firstly, we present the functionalist conceptualization of cycles of life and the biographical conceptualization in depth, which can be also called transition sociology. The biographical conceptualization arises from the work crisis in the mid 70, which had an impact in the increasing of unemployment rate and the backwardness of stable employment. Secondly, we present the nominalist conceptualization, which is based on the theory of the generations of Mannheim. Finally, the conclusion stresses that one of the challenges in our field of research is the sociological delimitation of youth, and, consequently, a solution has to be found.
