A dÃdiva e a vivÃncia religiosa: implicaÃÃes da religiosidade no desenvolvimento de prÃticas sociais solidÃrias na comunidade




This work analyzes a research project, from a socio- anthropological point of view, which studied the differences between two groups of women involved in support and/or assistance projects with low income people in the areas where they live. The project referred to was for the purpose of training and evaluating the success of these women in developing activities with poor people of the area , activities of support, listening and/or referring people who needed help to a psychologist or a psychiatrist. The difference between the groups could be seen in their disposition for voluntary service to the community. My work is based on three theoretical pillars: a) Giving and Receiving; b) Sciences Social and Religion; c) Solidarity, Social ability and Subjectivity. The qualitative analysis follows the path suggested by Symbolic Interactionism, using an analysis of content, topical life history, and inter and intragroup comparison. It can be stated that the differences are a result of one of the groups living in situation based on sharing and solidarity which has influenced a way of being which values practices of social solidarity. I believe that taking part in groups and religious associations or not religious, may produce attributes in the participants comparable to the Ethical Personality. I suggest that further investigations be carried out to verify or not these findings
