A dialectical way of thinking has been marginalized in the western academy. Western scholars and philosophers tend to examine dialectical thinking as irrelevant, vague, and problematic. The roots of the negative stance to dialectic can be found in the “cult of empiricism” (Toulmin and Leary 1985) and the “enduring dominance of positivism” (Breen and Darlaston-Jones 2008) in psychology as well as in other disciplines. Additionally, it should be mentioned that schematic and formalist interpretations of dialectics doubtless contribute to the reproduction of its negative reception in western Academia.
