Synthesis (from the ancient Greek σύνθεσις, σύν (with) and θεσις (placing)), is commonly understood to be an integration of two or more pre-existing elements which results in a new creation.

Philosophical synthesis Edit

The term is broad in meaning and can apply to physical, ideological, and/or phenomenological entities. In dialectics, synthesis is the final result of attempts to reconcile the inherent contradiction between thesis and antithesis. Along with the similar concept of integration, synthesis is generally considered to be an important element of modern philosophy, particularly in the various emerging ideas often considered to be holistic (as opposed to reductionistic).
