Lifestyles. An outline of a systemic theory and research concept
The paper is an attempt to carry out a critical reconstruction of the notion of lifestyles. On the one hand, it is a historical review of the views of various authors tackling this issue, and on the other, it is a starting point for the development of the authors’ own concept of lifestyle. Starting from an interdisciplinary research perspective combining the postulates of radical empiricism, theory of social systems and cognitive constructivism, and taking into account the still vague scope of the notion of lifestyle rooted in classic demography or reverse theories of society, we would like to present an alternative concept of this phenomenon, so relevant today.
