  1. Nascent state

    The nascent state is defined as a psychological process of destructuration-reorganization where the individual becomes capable of merging with other persons and creating a new collectivity with a very high degree of solidarity. This concept was first defined by Francesco Alberoni, a prominent Italian sociologist, journalist, and professor in Sociology, in his book Statu Nascenti. However, the concept is referred to in much of his work. In his book Falling in Love and Loving, Alberoni defends that there are similarities to be found between massive collective movements and love relationships: Up till now, sociologists, psychologists, and philosophers have displayed a sort of repugnance or embarrassment in admitting that there is something in common—or better, something identical—to be found both in great historical processes like Islam, the French Revolution, or the Russian Revolution and in such personal, banal phenomena as the experience of falling in love. [...] In an analogous way, the falling-in-love process is the simplest form of a collective movement. [...] The definition given of the falling-in-love process offers us a theoretical slot in which to position this mysterious phenomenon of collective movements. Not only, but the same definition provides us with an extraordinary tool for investigating the nature of all such movements.

  1. Nascent State

    An element just separating from a combination possesses at that time higher affinities than after separation, and can effect more powerful chemical changes. It is sometimes attributed to a differential time of existence in the atomic modification, before the freed atoms have united to form molecules.
