What is “thesis, antithesis, synthesis”?

The triad thesis, antithesis, synthesis as a progression of three ideas or propositions is a concept in philosophy and logic that evolved from the dialectical method, which is basically a discourse between two or more people holding different points of view about a subject but wishing to establish the truth through reasoned arguments. Hegel developed dialectic approach that comprises three stages of development: first, a “thesis” or statement of an idea, which gives rise to a second step, a reaction or “antithesis” that contradicts or negates the thesis, and third, the “synthesis”, a statement through which the differences between the two points are resolved.
