Definition of Dualism:

  1. The division of something conceptually into two opposed or contrasted aspects, or the state of being so divided.

  2. Simplistic concept that all issues can be divided into either/or states such as good/bad, right/wrong, determinable/indeterminable. Dualism does not recognize a continuum of values (a stretch of varying shades of gray between black and white at either ends) and cannot explain complexity.
