Research Proves the Efficiency of Conflicted Rules Theory

Project description

After I published my theory in one of the journals of Cairo University. In April 2018
I am now trying to conduct a number of research or help colleagues to accomplish research to test this theory.

1. A Brief Description of Conflicted Rules Theory:

It Is a new theory in sociology, trying to understand the relationship between agency and social structure and explain the processes of change that affect this relationship in a specific time and place. The theory divides social agency into three main types, which are, dynamic, intellectual, and spiritual agencies.
The theory assumes that, in routine situations, members of society, when practicing any of the above agencies, adhere to stable and crystallized rules in the collective mind. We call it structural rules. They are divided into dynamic, intellectual and spiritual rules. But some of these rules, over time and the succession of different factors of change, become inappropriate to regulate behavior. Individuals, therefore, seek to modify or completely change these rules.
The theory also claims that each society has three sub-structures that together form what is called the tripartite social structure: It is the interactive structure that regulates the informal and spontaneous relations and interactions, the institutional structure regulates the formal relations and interactions within the various institutions of society and the tunnel structure, which is based on structural rules against the rules of the interactive and institutional structures, remains a tunnel structure that regulates illegal acts from the point of view of society, such as crime, corruption, and other networks. The theory, therefore, assumes that the rules governing social agency in each of these sub-structures are in a semi-permanent inter-communal conflict, with the recognition that patterns of partial integration or co-existence can sometimes be linked.

The Theory also assumes that there are three basic mechanisms of change rules in interactive and institutional structures (without neglecting the effect of counter rules in dark tunnel structure). the first Mechanism, through new collective agencies which are approved, spread and repeated; this way takes a relatively long period of time until the change of the rule occurs. The social collective agencies can be classified into two kinds: spontaneous collective agencies and active collective agencies.

Second, through the authoritarian agencies. There are three kinds of the authoritarian agencies as follows: progressive agency, abusive agency and weird agency. The third mechanism through the exceptional individual agencies is made by exceptional personalities in the history of societies. There are two types of this change: progressive exceptional agencies and abusive exceptional agencies.
