PERSON IN THE ORGANIZATION: RELATIONS AUTHORITY OF CONFLICT AND POWER. A VIEW FROM THE UNIVERSITY
One of the basic features of organizations is that they are made up from individuals and these develop conflict, authority and power relationships. This is something completely natural; however, being so complex, it has been looked up from different view points.
This paper focuses on Simon’s and Lorenzer’s ideas, with the aim of showing the individual can look at the problem both from the social or the personal side, completely changing subject’s perspectives.
Similarly conflict, even though it is perfectly natural in organized groups, for some it involves destruction, disintegration and it has only negative aspects as exposed by Parson. For other, there are totally opposed visions like Mayo’s, who considers it an equilibrium factor. University also of course fully identifies within this dynamics, and therefore it becomes necessary to
see this threefold relationship, both from the history and inherent synergies. The so called university
autonomy is a form of power which had Its origin in England, and has been taken up In other parts of the
world for universities to preserve their own identity, in Colombia universities also claim this autonomy
from legislative acts.
