TIRAMONTI, Guillermina. Processes of individualization in students. Middle and Upper Sectors in Argentina. RMIE [online]. 2006, vol.11, n.29, pp.367-380. ISSN 1405-6666.

This article summarizes the sociological discussion of modifications in the relationship between the individual and society, and the processes of disinstitutionalization that would seem to characterize society at the present time. Using the database from an empirical study, the article identifies asymmetries in the processes of individualization experienced by students in the final year of secondary school. These asymmetries are associated with various social, family and school conditions that provide the students with very different expectations, resources and skills for approaching decisions, in response to the demand to be genuine.

Keywords : young people; relationship between the individual and society; family; role of the school; Argentina.
