Muh. Abdi Goncing


This article discusses how Pierre Bourdieu’s viewpoint on violence ontology and its relevance to violence phenomenon toward Indonesia’s society.

Within the context of Indonesian, it can be involving violence between religious society in this country, or it can be specified over again into the society who embraces Islam. A new violence is actually a practice of domination conducted by the parties who think they are the only one true and majority in order to perpetuate the truth dominance of religion.
