One of the most controversial facets of the present individualized society has to do with self identity construction. The present flexibility that concerns professional roles and the multiplicity of social belongings make its stabilization very problematic. Social actors can create a sort of imaginative sociability in a particular way of communication with their bodies, devoting to them most of their cares. Their bodies become the actual factor of individuation because these are the loci of actors’ realm on an ever fluctuant social world. Contemporary society has in itself a controversial perception of corporeity too, whenever virtual reality and its rules demand the performing skill of multiple identities devoid of
actors’ bodies. This ambivalence puts the focus of attention on the old dicothomy between mind and body especially concerning virtual realities.
