Sociological conflict is also defined as a confrontation of powers (Rummel 1975), with the power taking many forms and shapes. Power can be identive and assertive, altruistic and manipulative, coercive and physical or even expressive. Rummel (1975) has opined that "power can be intentionally directed, as are as are assertive and bargaining powers; one is directed wholly towards a person's body, as is force; and others are directed through another self, as are inductive and intellectual powers." Ultimately all these powers can have a major impact resulting in a conflict. Several other authors (John and MacArthur 2006) also opined that "social conflict refers to the various types of negative social interaction that may occur within social relationships (e.g., arguments, criticism, hostility, unwanted demands), and may include physical violence."
This paper is also forwarded to learn many sociological conflicts involving conflicts that will confront us in the way we think, challenge us to understand, and defend, conflict from multiple viewpoints and to know what exactly happens when ideas, institutions, and diverse actions are viewed from different perspectives (Harvey 2005).
The main concern here is of course, understanding and explaining the basics of sociological conflicts; by its basic definition, socia...
Thus sociological conflict is in essence confrontation of social powers (Rummel 1975).
To critically explain and simply understand, a sociological conflict is an exclusive aspect of social power, and is not entirely limited or restricted to a hostile or antagonistic opposition! In essence, the conflict of intellectual is often "expressed through debating, arguing, or disputing; of bargaining powers through haggling, negotiating, dickering, bartering, or exchanging; of authoritative powers through adjudicating, appealing, or documenting; of altruistic powers through accommodating, obliging, or benefiting" (Rummel 1975). One of the most important points that are to be noted here is that love/affection and conflict can never come together, though persuasive inductive vectors are more common among lovers. Thus, these expressions of conflicts that are altruistic in nature are also called social solidarity (Rummel 1975).
Till date, sociological conflicts and its ramifications have been a neglected aspect of social equation in sociological research that concerns the British society. Existing measures usually consists of a small numbers of items that inquire about the frequency and modulation of various types of critically negative social interactions like demands and criticisms; and things that are asked generally with respect to some type of relationships like, spouse and friends (Seeman et al 1994, Schuster et al 1990). Currently available research data shows us that lower the SES, higher will be the sociological conflicts in case of adults, while the same is often true in younger lots, when SES is connected with more traumatic peer relations.
More often, sociological conflicts may arise as
