3) Dialectical Basis
's concept of dialectic– consisting of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis – acts as formalbasis. Synthesis, however, does not mean just a "happy medium" somewhere between thesis andantithesis, but a conflation on a superordinate, independent level.
4) System-theoretical Basis
Once and again, the conceptual divisions refer to themselves as well, e.g., if it is about culturalbackgounds of insight. As a result, the three-membered systematics itself claims to represent thesis,antithesis, and synthesis, i.e., to pick up and to comprehend traditional categories, to be structured bylogically consistent affiliations, and to be dynamic by rotating categories as well.
5) Reference levels
The conceptual manifestations of the three dimensions refer ● to the dealing with the
(society, culture),● to the dealing with the
(nature, spirituality), and● to the dealing with the
(the own person including wishes, experiences, fears, passions,conflicts). [
6) Primary aspects for classification
In this systematics,
act as landmarks. However, emotionalcloseness should not be regarded as counterpart of emotional distance, because one can experienceboth at the same time without being "schizophrenic", namely by being warm-hearted and being innerlyinvolved, without clinging on a reference object. However, for "losers" it is characteristic that they donot only lack dynamics, but in addition that they are neither able to engage nor to distance themselves.The contrary applies to "schizopsychos" [
] which can take on schizophrenic features in the case of maximum occurrence in the form of messages like "I love you to bits, so just get out!". In spite of that,for normal manifestations of closeness, distance and dynamics the rules of ambiguity toleranceare
applicable. In any case, closeness may not be confused with dynamics, as well as closeness is nocategorical contrary to distance – as long as we intend to avoid seriouscategory mistakes.
7) Rotational direction
The three dimensions are connected as follows:
