Keywords: urban communities, rural communities, conflict and social consensus, contemporary society


From the perspective of classical sociology, rural communities are often thought and understood as spaces where there are balance and harmony; and urban communities as spaces where alienation and anxiety reign. Within urban communities, conflicts and unrest are much more evident, and social cohesion is not as intense as in rural communities. There is no doubt that for contemporary sociology, social conflict is mainly analyzed in urban communities, even if in both rural and urban communities there has been consensus and conflict alike, in all historical periods. We notice, at the same time, that today, during a pandemic, the conflict in the urban space is more present than ever. However, we do not lose hope that we will eventually overcome these challenges and emerge much stronger from this trial; and social conflict will be present, more and more, only in futurem studies and articles.
