Abstract

The study suggests a method to study and analyzes peter plau sayings in the exchange process in the social context .Our method depends on text extrapolation and elects meanings and drivers for social exchange action , the conditions for beginning and continuing a successful exchange ,the effects of its failure and comparing it with some sociologists opinions and their criticism of it .We show the ability of this method to understand ,analyze the theory sayings , in addition we analyze the importance and effects the criteria , interests, values in the exchange action .It appears that the main mechanism and necessary condition to start social exchange from peter plau view point is the self-personal interest streaming from individual free will not the ethical value standard which streams from plural conscience social compulsive will and that the exchange process of peter plau is nearer to individual voluntary action than to collective compulsive act and its preferred to confine social exchange in individuals optional acts without setting any limits for these actions .Peter shows that the social exchange process driven by instant or future benefits .We conclude that There is confusion, blurred and ambiguity in some concepts addressed by peter palu in his theory about social exchange ( acts , interests) which support the arguments that short-term theories have limited vision , therefore its concepts will be shrouded in some ambiguity. On the other hand, we find plau gives the individual freedom to use his mind without being bound by the values and standards of his society and therefore to choose the means that fulfil his needs and desires. The study recommends researchers for further study and analysis about the sayings of peter plau in the exchange process using other methods.
