Dichotomien erleichtern das Denken. Sie geben Orientierung, sind Grundlage von rationalen Entscheidungen, geben Anleitung zur Systematisierung und nicht selten zur Bewertung. An ihre Grenzen gerät eine binäre Logik, wenn sich Phänomene nicht innerhalb einer zweiwertigen Ordnung bestimmen lassen. Die Überführung starrer, dualistischer (Denk-)Formen in eine erweiterte Verhältnisbestimmung bildet den Anspruch sozialwissenschaftlicher Ansätze, die an Hegel und Adorno anschließen. Ein bestimmter Widerspruchstyp gilt ihnen als produktive Kategorie. Der Sammelband stellt Elemente einer dialektischen Theorie zur Diskussion.
