Abstract

The article is an attempt to discuss the idea of risk society from the perspective of historical sociology or, to be more precise, the theory of social becoming developed by Piotr Sztompka. In this sense, the societal reality of risk society seems to be characterized by a specific innate dynamism rendering possible the discrepancy between objective volume of experienced risk and the perceived intensity of social uncertainty.

Keywords

Risk society. The theory of social becoming. Historical sociology. The Social Amplification of Risk Framework.
