Dialectic

Dialectic
   The Dialectic as Used by Philosophers
   Dialectic As in dialogue (Socrates) or debate over opposites (Hegel) and clash of material forces (Marx) producing dynamic change.
   Or, a process of reasoning based upon the analysis of opposing propositions. Socrates used the dialectic method of teaching by distinguishing between opinion and knowledge. Hegel and Marx developed dialectic conceptions of history in which for Hegel, opposing ideas were the key, while for Marx history was explained as the conflict of material forces. (Stumpf, 1994, p. 936)
