15767. Conflicting Views on Social Power: Talcott Parsons Versus C. Wright Mills. This paper analyzes and compares Mills' and Parsons' conceptions of power and its social systematization. Since it is the more clearly defined of the two views, the analysis begins with an overview of Mills' conception of social power and then turns to Parsons' view and the differences in the central assumptions and implications of the two versions. Concludes that Mills' conceptualization focuses on the distributive aspects of power while Parsons emphasized the consensual aspects in power. Mills' conceptualization assumes that power is inherently evil; Parsons finds social benefit in the exercise of legitimate power. 12 pages, 35 footnotes, 13 bibliographic sources.   $84
