Gospodăria între vecinătate și rudenie
The household between neighborhood and kinship
Abstract (Rezumat în limba engleză): This article is trying to bring in discussion the problem of the social institution of the Neighborhood, the problem was opened by some articles and papers (look at the bibliography quoted on the theme of the Neighborhoods) In this theme is included the present existence of this social organization and the process of changes that pass through this institution along time.
We try also to question the relationship between the neighborhood and the kinship, due to the fact that these two concepts don`t belong to the same discursive field, we try to figure out what unites and what separates them in a particular social space, in the communities and in the villages where there are Neighborhoods.
Our try has the purpose to discover one of the main factors which permitted the co-existence of these two types of social relation, the neighborhood and the kinship.
