Designing hypercitizenship methodologically


  • Andrea Pitasi University of Bologna



Hypercitizen, systemic approach, cosmopolitan, Malthus Trap.


This paper is essentially epistemological and methodological and is aimed at designing the hypercitizen methodological toolkit. It is not merely through an indicator based approach but also on a modelling based approach and a metatheoretical one (Stepanic et al., 2005: 858). Conceptually, it evolves by reframing the key global changes of our times under the emer-gence of hypercitizenship from a multidimensional convergence among different kinds of citizenship Pitasi, 2013; Pitasi- Angrisani , 2013): cosmopolitan (Beck, 2006), scientific (Nowotny, 2008), societarian (Donati, 1993), entrepreneurial (I evolved by reinterpreting Audretsch, 2007 who, properly, copes with the “entrepreneurial society” not the entrepre-neurial citizenship).The four dimensions are shaped systemically (Luhmann, 1990, 1997) through a social free energy/social entropy coding (Stepanic et al., 2005: 860).
