Dialectic thinking as a means of understanding systems-in-development: relevance to Rogers's principles.

Wilson, Lorraine M. MS, RN; Fitzpatrick, Joyce J. PhD, RN
Advances in Nursing Science: January 1984

This paper explores the dialectical noncausal category of determination as a method of explaining human development and examines its relationship to Rogers's principles of homeodynamics. The relationships among determinism, causality, and lawfulness are discussed, and the categories of determination are reviewed.
