This paper examines the logic that Alberto Melucci has developed towards a new paradigm of social movement theory. In his serious attempt at a paradigm change, he has constructed a theory of collective action that has so far attracted less attention than his theses on the information society, but which nonetheless deserves a systematic reconstruction. From his phenomenological perspective, contrasted here with a modern technological perspective, sociological concepts like “social change” and “action system” are examined up to the point where his key concept of “collective identity” is formulated. The logic of its formulation will show itself as a reconstruction of the concept of social movement.
