The Metathinking Framework is a combination of Ken Wilber’s integral quadrants and the four dialectical thinking modes known as SPiRiT. The dialectical thinking modes include Structural, Process, Relationship, and Transformation.
The Structural mode of thinking is based on the principle of holism, which sees things as part of a larger structure. The thought patterns that correspond to the Structural mode include Differentiation of elements in a whole representing a stable entity in its own right,
Elaboration of elements with reference to the structure, hierarchy, and functionality of the elements, and Integration of different elements and perspectives into a structured bigger entity as a system.
