4 Epistemic and Social Conflicts Epistemic conflicts are likely to generate new social conflicts in yet another way: Epistemic conflicts (even among cooperating agents): (Goal X p) and (Goal Y p) goal agreement (Bel X (q > p)) and (Bel Y (q > (Not p))): belief conflict (Goal X q) and (Goal Y (Not q)): conflict Belief conflicts can generate goal conflicts. Conversely, epistemic conflicts can generate cooperation, goal agreement, among people with conflicting goals, for example, between enemies: if goal conflict (Goal X p) and (Goal Y (Not p)) belief conflict (Bel X (q > p)) and (Bel Y (q > Not p)) !

To be in conflict or to experience a conflict, I must have and perceive some difficulty that must be resolved; I feel “split” between the two perspectives, for the following possible reasons: – Because there is too much uncertainty or lack of crucial information, and so I feel anxiety and worry about making the wrong decision; – Or because the value of the “sacrificed” goal is too high; as stated earlier, any decision in a conflict implies a perceived “renunciation,” that is, a loss, a suffering; – Or the perceived risk in case of failure is too high, in that potential harm is very high or its probability is high (subjective risk of failure).

For example, a conflict of opinions is represented by the contradiction between a proposition A and a proposition not A, an actual conflict that may emerge between two agents concerning their opinions can be described by assuming that an agent is claiming A whereas the other agent is claiming not A. The motivation for using SCT in analyzing conflict is that it allows for singling out a peculiar notion of conflict of groups. Although it may seem at first that the agreement forced by SCT on the procedure to settle possible conflicts is sufficient for guaranteeing that any conflict among the members of the group can be settled, quite surprisingly, this is not the case.
