The Conflict Theory by George Simmel

Summary: George S. states that conflict is designed to resolve divergent dualisms and is a way of achieving unity even if it means getting rid of one of the conflicting parties. Conflict, therefore, causes or modifies associations.

Critique: that conflict causes or modifies associations are true. I agree with George S. theory and affirm that the theory spells out more and does not just mean that peace comes only through conflict or war. Through conflicts, one of parties or both parties will always come to an agreeing level. The basis of the unifying aspect of conflict is the historical past attainment where along with the unifying factors; there were other factors that primarily were against the unity. There are almost always two opposing factors that are in constant conflict even as an individual seeks to establish harmony. The same also exists in societies when a certain state of harmony is to be achieved. Therefore, two factors that signify both the destructive and the unifying aspects have to work together upon the realization of a total relationship.
