Abstract or Introduction
As the title suggests, this work is about my personal understanding of violence. In addition, an example from the completed group work of the seminar "Sociology of Violence" is used. If you try to define violence, you will notice that violence can only be evaluated subjectively and that there is no uniform definition. For example, Randall Collins tries to differentiate types of violence with his micro-violence theory.
Thus it can be stated that although violence can be differentiated and thus found in different dimensions, it cannot be generalized to a simple definition. In the course of this work, I would like to offer the reader just one explanatory approach and explain my individual position on violence. In addition, the essay is intended to sensitize the reader to the concept of violence and to enable a detached understanding of social norms.
