The theme of identity as a source of representations of self and social relations is at the center of the contemporary sociological debate on dilemmas of modernization and has often been considered as the analytical framework within which such unresolved issues could be caught in their most emblematic profiling. Some of these controversial issues will be taken into account in the present essay through a comparison between the social sciences and the biomolecular sciences perspectives, both increasingly involved in the clarification of the most common misconceptions regarding the immutability of this set of signs and its progressive dissolution.
