1. WHAT IS A DIALECTIC EXEMPLARS?

A Dialectic Exemplar is an Ideal Dialectic Model which serves as an Example or Prototype.

The Dialectic Exemplar which has served as the model or prototypical example for all others has been the Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis triad. The relation between the three abstract terms of the triad can be summarized in the following way:

(1) a beginning proposition called a thesis, (2) a negation of that thesis called the antithesis, and (3) a synthesis whereby the two conflicting ideas are reconciled to form a new proposition.

As soon as the contradiction between thesis and antithesis is resolved by synthesis, a new thesis emerged gives rise to a new antithesis and therefore another contradiction. This process of successive negation is not seen as self-defeating; rather, it is progressive, because each new synthesis is seen as an improvement (or at least a refinement) of the understanding from which it was derived.

Fichte was the first to use the “thesis–antithesis–synthesis” as a formula together and employed the triadic idea of this trilogy of words for the explanation of change. But as dialectic formulas and empirical evidence such as the premodern, modern, postmodern, and modern dialectic of social history suggests, the thesis, antithesis, synthesis triad fails to acknowledge the antisynthesis which always occurs before any synthesis.

A more accurate and complete form of Dialectic Exemplar, Model or Method is a quad; Thesis, Antithesis, Antisynthesis and Synthesis within a Fourfold Movement.
