Abstract:
The article addresses the society problem of the perception of individual loneliness in the cohort of elderly people. The researchers conducted empirical research by recorded interviewing a cohort of female and male people between the age of 65 and 99. The researchers postulate that the feeling of solitude is an opportunity to reveal the relational needs of individuals. They question the opportunity of a technical mediation in an emotional situation. Is it possible to consider approaches that are not limited to functional aspects? This work is integrated in the field of anthropology communication as defined by F. Martin-Juchat and B. Galinon- Mélénec. These approaches consider the body as a medium. The studies focus on the singular message that it leaves in its environment. The researchers highlight the unique aspects of communicative experience. The research method examines the interactions including the use of social networks on the web and the significations. The researchers postulate that relational developments correlate to certain life events, e.g., war, death, retirement. Their investigative work focuses on the elderly with the collection of autobiographical testimonies. They have formalized an interpretative grid from an extended approach of the "situational and interactionist semiotics" developed by A. Mucchielli. This grid was used as a tool of analyze. The relationship to the other people brings a sense of material and emotional security. They have shown that the construction of the relational environment includes a strategic and creative dimension. They concentrated their investigations on the mediation of relational creativity. They rely on works on the biography of C. Delory Momberger and they established a model of mediation. They propose a model called "relational biography". This approach highlights the way the person builds its relational environment. It highlights the emotional and bibliographic part of the action. It takes into account the experience lived in its fictional dimension. This research highlights a relational mode with the object which contributes to the inscription of the person in the reality and participle in the relational feeling of satisfaction. In the situation studied by ageing, it allows to establish the necessity of taking into account the creative dimension of the relation as the esthetics of the everyday life. The old age is marked by breaks in the route of life that accompany intense phases of identity reorganization. The researchers suggest developing a bibliographic approach from the object as a media of evocation. The fictional object favors the conditions of the reorganization of the relational environment. The media like digital networks is integrated in the model like an extension of human being and relational space. It is a research in-progress.
