Military sociology, fundamental knowledge of sociology, theorization of knowledge, conflict


Military sociology is an important direction among middle-level theories in sociology, as it creates and integrates knowledge about such important areas of social reality as military forces and war, the relationship between society and the army, the causes and effects of war, and so on. But researchers in this area outline difficulties in the creation and integration of military sociological knowledge into the system of fundamental knowledge of sociology. The purpose of this article is to elucidate a discourse about the issue and the cause of the problem.
