Abstract: This paper aims to describe the main parametres of a revised social security concept, adapted to the needs of a modern society. It re-examines the traditional perceptions of the role of indemnification (in the form of income replacement schemes the in case of typical insurance risks) as the basic policy instrument in the field of social protection and refers to the importance of preventive programmas, particularly in health care and employment. The author argues, therefore, for the adoption of an alternative definition which views social security as a stae of comlete protection against human damage;; he also stresses its scientific and social implications and the necessary conditions for putting it into action.
