The subject of this essay is an analysis of the most significant theoretical approaches that have affected the personal networks, with the aim to demonstrate that interest in the personal networks created with the late modernity that has accelerated the process of individuation and individualism. The purpose of this essay will be to demonstrate that the relational approach is the one that best approximates the study of interpersonal networks and that, in terms of explanation and understanding of the latest social dynamics, never as in this moment is strategic to put a specific emphasis on interpersonal relationships. To achieve these goals, after seeing how the classical sociology dealt with personal networks, we present the relational approach, which can find in the network analysis its specific methodological complements, then we conclude with a reflection on the operational impacts of some recent empirical researches.

Keywords: Personal Network, Community, Social Capital.
