Secondly, deepening the subject of attitudes and their influence on behavior. Through the study of attitudes and social influence it is possible to recognize the relationship existing between the individual and society, in which a reciprocal influence takes place. Even if people remains cognitive conservative the potential for change still exist when a communication has been done between a source and a receiver. Last, but not least, defining the appropriate method so that the psychosocial perspective can be defined as a science. The need for scientific validation, in social psychology as in other disciplines, implies, however, that the use of investigative tools should never be thought of as a rigid application of contexts and techniques, but should represent the expression of choices taken towards an adaptation that the researcher pursues, evaluating the cases in question, with the aim of providing answers capable of increasing the scientific and everyday knowledge of one's own and others. Finally, arriving at a reinterpretation of the original meanings of the Pirandellian work in the light of the psychosocial condition, in which the flow of influences that each day drive the behavior and opinions of the subject involved should be rethought as a guarantee of a necessary exchange for the lymph vital to a journey that is continually progressing, both in science and in everyday life.
