The JOURNAL, It’s DIALECTICAL
 From the Greek words for dispute and debate, this is
the science of the general laws governing the
development of nature, science, society and thought.
It considers all facts to be in movement and in
perpetual change. This concept relates to process of
development in all things through struggle,
contradiction and the replacement on one form by
another.
