Conflict In "The Outsiders"
Man vs. Self: The inability for Johnny to control his fear and know the right thing to do. Johnny was afraid for his life and thought Ponyboy was being killed. Should he defend himself or possibly get killed?
Man vs. Society: It seems that most of society would be outraged at what the Socs did in the past to Johnny. And most of society would agree that in this situation, defending himself the way Johnny did is fair and legally ok. Johnny is the man who needs to come to accept that Bob's death was in self-defense.
Man vs. Man: History in the community has placed the young rich kids against the kids with less money. Over time, society called them Socs vs. Greasers. This means that each man is against another man for the purpose of the outside traits, not the inside of each young man.
