The aim of my article is to outline a survey of the most relevant normative uses of the concept of solidarity, especially in political philosophy and moral theory. Firstly, I will sketch a preliminary overview of the sociological background at the base of the concept of social solidarity, which I think is necessary for both methodological and conceptual reasons. Secondly, I will attempt to describe some of the most widespread philosophical uses of the concept of social solidarity, which I will highlight distinguishing analytically among social, civic, political and moral solidarity. Finally, I will develop a mental experiment which aims to stress a dilemma of loyalty between political solidarity claims and moral solidarity claims.
