(Title in Polish - 'Klasyczna socjosomatyka i jej nieklasyczna odmiana. Wklad socjologii zdrowia i choroby w dyskurs o zaburzeniach somatycznych i etiologii chorób'). This article provides new insight into somatization and its causes. It is the response to psychosomacontext paradigm visible in sociological idea of 'functional illness'. It discusses foundations of classic meaning of sociosomatic paradigm. Based itself on the weakness of classical sociosomatic the text gives the new version of it. Is it possible to find a sociological category that would be as an equivalent of stress in the psychosomatic paradigm? Is it possible that its function and influence would be the same in the sociosomatic view? Do sociosomatic illnesses exist? This article is the first attempt to answer these questions.
