Main Idea: We understand conflict when we understand that we live in communication as culture.
James W. Carey’s cultural approach to communication presents the idea that we live in and through communication and this human capacity is what creates culture. This isn’t a new idea. The book of Proverbs is full of wisdom about the creative power of our words. In fact, we could go so far as to say that to speak is to create.
Analyzing conflict isn’t just about structure or pattern, but also about the power of our words. When we take a closer look at conflict, we find that our words matter more than we may realize. Communication theories—from interpersonal to organizational—help to illuminate our capacity to engage difficult, even fierce conversations with the hope of restoration and even reconciliation
