   Dimitrie Gusti and all the scholars of the School he founded represent a part of Romania's intangible heritage. The Bucharest School of Sociology means both institutional construction, exceptional capabilities and skills, a new system of knowledge and explanation. In a word, we speak of a spiritual heritage of inestimable value. An Encyclopedia must capitalize this inheritance exemplifying the function of the Romanian state as a state of culture at the Lower Danube.

   The current trend calls for more frequent use of mapping methods and techniques in the process of assessing community resilience in socio-economic terms. The project aims to develop the Atlas of Social Resilience as a tool for analyzing the resilience of human communities. This will be achieved by creating an index of social resilience.

   The project aims to study the corpus of social theories and explanatory models elaborated in sociology and in related branches of science on two fundamental social realities and concepts: community and identity. In the context of a deficient methodizing and understanding of analytical tools regarding fundamental constituents of social reality, the research team is interested to study the scientific frameworks for understanding elaborated so far on social morphology and to critically approach them in order to improve the specialized theoretical tools.
