Editor's Note (Toru Nakagawa, Aug. 2, 2013)
This paper was originally submitted on Nov. 22, 2012 to Japan TRIZ Society for its Journal being planned at that time but quitted later by the end of the year. So the author contributed this to be published as an original paper in the "TRIZ Home Page in Japan". The Editor, Toru Nakagawa, has reviewed the paper in Japanese for publication (but not its English version). I apologize for not posting this paper much earlier.
The author, Mr. Toshio Takahara, has been working to do research for himself for these over 10 years after his retirement from an IT company. He works on the Theory of Resolving Differences, i.e. problem solving and task achieving, and has already published more than 25 papers/presentations. The present Web site has the repository of all of them in the following two documents:
A Collection of Papers Written by Toshio Takahara (2003-2007) Annotated Bibliography: "Theory of Resolving Differences", Toshio Takahara Dec. 27, 2007 (containing 14 papers) (Mar. 30,2008)
The Second Collection of Papers Written by Toshio Takahara (2008-2012) Annotated Bibliography: "Theory of Resolving Differences (2)", Toshio Takahara Jan. 24, 2013 (containing 13 papers) (Mar. 7, 2013)
Concerning to the concepts and terms developed originally by the author, please refer to the guides and papers of these collections.
In the present paper the author discusses on contradictions and dialectic. See the abstract shown below.
Some of the key terms used by the author are explained here briefly by Nakagawa for your help.
Modularity: The scope and size of perception in space, time, and meaning
Objects: Something percepted in a modularity; anything we can perceive can be an object, including existing things (i.e., matters and "ideas") and interactions.
Attributes: Properties of an object, including its inner structures and values of properties.
Interactions: A relation (between existing things) = An action (between existng things) = A movement = A process (in the time axis) = A change (as a result)
Technology: An assemblage of technical means, which intermediate human interactions towards the nature, and the processes of generating, utilizing and operating it.
Institution: An assemblage of common ideas, which intermediate human interactions towards the community, and the processes of generating,utilizing, and operating it.
Movement: A change in objects and their relations, not limited to positional change but also including physical, chemical, organic, social, human, and idea changes.
Contradictions: A concept developed here, including all the coonventional concepts of contradictions. Creation and movement (or change) of relationships between two terms (attributes or values) having interactions with outside.

A Note on Movement and Contradiction in Technology and Institution

I learned a lesson from historical example of process of beginning of barter which traditional concept of movement or contradiction by K. Marx did not deal with.
G.S. Altshuller expanded the concept of contradiction of “Physical Contradiction” and “Technical Contradiction” to deal with almost every movement or action.
As a result my work is only to generalize the concept of contradiction by G.S. Altshuller to deal with every movement or action.
Technology is an assemblage of technical means and its process of generation and movements. In the same way something is an assemblage of essence of something and its process of generation and movements of the essence according to one of the conclusion of Radical Thinking for Enumeration which manage granularity and enumeration of objects.
The essence is two terms and their relation. So contradiction is process of generation and movements of two terms and their relation
Two terms is two attributes of two objects, two attributes of one object or two values of one object. Two terms are used to be called opposites. So two terms appears to be two attributes of two objects, two attributes of one object or two values of one attribute of one object.
Under these premises one of the numbers of two is target and the other is the present or the two attributes or two values are going together.
The former is the case of resolving differences having one variable and the latter is the case of going together having two variables.
Resolving differences having one variable of attribute or value is usual change of object in real movement. Resolving differences or usual change of object consists of usual making new function, solving issues and idealization.
Going together having two variables consists of the case of two attributes and two values.
The case of two attributes is “Technical Contraction” in TRIZ having the case of two attributes of two objects or two attributes of one object. The case of two values is “Physical Contradiction” in TRIZ having the case of two values of one object.
This contradiction happens to be expansion of usual contradiction which includes autonomous contradiction by Marx and Engels and “Technical Contraction” and “Physical Contradiction” in TRIZ by G. S. Altshuller. Both Radical Thinking for Enumeration and contradiction which is the unit of dialectical logic will be the base of the method of technology and institution and also the base of the way of life.
