The first part of this sociological study offers a schematic presentation of types of families and fathers in different (more or less, past, traditional) societies. The second part discusses families and fathers in modem western societies. The author mentions several especially actual problems. As a matter of fact, it is evident that in the present-day familiy the role of the father is in a state of crisis. Ethymologically, however, crisis means a process of differentiation, of discrimination. Fathers will be more and more often confronted with the pressure of dissatisfied wives or they will adapt to the new circumstances and requirements; otherwise they will be, roughly speaking declared, and rejected, as unnecessary.
