The German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was inspired by Chinese philosophy and the concepts of Yin and Yang. In Hegelian dialectic, change is described as a process consisting of various stages; each stage a harmonious whole of opposing forces of previous stages.
Hegelian dialectic has been popularized as a three-step process of thesis, antithesis and synthesis. A thesis that gives rise to its reaction, an antithesis, which contradicts or negates the thesis. The tension between the two being resolved by means of a synthesis.
