This paper presents the results of a study which investigated theoretical elements associated with the fundamentals of the so-called sociologies of individuals, leading to the understanding of complex relations between the historical-cultural structures and individual experiences. The main purpose is to analyze the recent academic production dedicated to the study of the sociology of singularization, with aim of identifying more deeply the theoretical guidelines, the problems and types of research undertaking by contemporary researchers who are aware of the issues of singularization, identity, socialization and their relations with the field of Education. The research project allowed to establish a dialogue, which I deem possible, between studies that have been conducted in the areas of Sociology of Education and Psychology of Education, especially between the theories of the sociology of individuals and historical-cultural psychology (advocated by L. S. Vygotsky). This goal was accomplished through the identification of the tenuous boundaries and intersections between the different theoretical models.
It is important to say that the thoughts presented herein are related to the investigations conducted in the field of Psychology of Development and of Education (and which have been approached in previous ISCAR congresses). Based on the historical-cultural psychology (Vygotsky & Luria, 1997) and in other theoretical sources, I have researched the formation of subjectivity through the ways the individual gives an account of his/her own life.
