A recent summary of the reemergence of the dialectic in sociology is to be found in Louis Schneider. The seven meaning-clusters for the term are as follows:

  1. A discrepancy between aim or intention and outcome
  2. Goal shifts and displacements (heterogeny of ends or functional autonomy)
  3. The idea that effective adaptations to a situation stand in the way of future progress, "success brings failure"
  4. Development through conflict
  5. Contradiction, opposition, or paradox
  6. Contradictory emotions
  7. Conflict dissolved in a coalescence of opposites.
    - Louis Schneider, "Dialectic in Sociology," American Sociological Review 36 (August 1971), pp. 667-678.
