Binary opposition

Oppositions such as man and machine; good and bad; competing theories (for example, quantum physics versus general relativity); the old and the new.

Economic development versus the serious environmental problems emerging in the River Nile Basin and its groundwater resources. If researchers have opposing views or approaches about an issue can you reflect these in a respectful way?
