Contradiction adapted is tolerant and pliable. It admits improvisation. It involves the disintegration of a prototype—and it ends in approximation and qualification. On the other hand, contradiction juxtaposed is unbending. It contains violent contrasts and uncompromising oppositions. Contradiction adapted ends in a whole which is perhaps impure. Contradiction juxtaposed ends in a whole which is perhaps unresolved.
