Summary

The nature of communication in the counterculture was investigated. The counterculture is distinguished from subculture and contraculture by its attempts to modify, change, and alter the dominant culture. A food co-op, which presented itself as being based on counterculture philosophy was studied as a representative organization within the counterculture. Field research (participant observation, interviews, and surveys) and a review of the literature were employed to study the conflict resolution attempts within the co-op. Results of the study indicated the co-op conflict resolution communication attempts exemplify dominant culture attempts. The co-op presented itself as using a consensus process (formal situations) and practicing egalitarian ideals (informal situations), but analysis found it did not consistently practice either.
