|Agonistic||parts are primary, producing whole through endeavors||two voices are tested against each other to organize whole||close off intermediate wholes because of external forces|
|Logistic||parts are primary, producing whole while remaining same||one voice beginning from determinate towards determinate whole||extend towards ultimates (least parts)|
|Dialectic||whole determines parts directly||two voices are united with each other to organize whole||extend towards ultimates (all-inclusive whole)|
|Problematic||whole determines parts reciprocally||one voice beginning from indeterminate towards determinate whole||close off intermediate wholes because of own internal unity|
Since the Archic Matrix can be thought of as the union of four separate fourfolds, each of the fourfolds of perspective, reality, method, principle can be considered on its own. Here is the fourfold of methods consisting of agonistic, logistic, dialectic, and problematic methods. The content of the table and the bottom figure is derived from Walter Watson’s Architectonics of Meaning.
