On the Dark Side: Not-So-Good Social Capital and Social Ties
Languages of publication
The prevailing way of understanding, what social capital is, stresses it’s positive functions and effects on the society and on individuals. The article, however, underlies the negative aspects of social capital in both ‘bridging’ and ‘bonding’ versions. The author summarizes critical arguments concerning political usage of the social capital concept, shows it’s negative functions, and why focusing on one type of social capital weakens social integration by weakening the reputation of individuals.
