reductionism

The aspects or law-spheres have sphere-sovereignty. they cannot be reduced to each other. Antinomy is the contradiction that arises when we try to reduce one aspect to another. It leads to a religious dialectic, a polar opposition between two aspects or sets of aspects.

In his early works, Dooyeweerd sometimes refers to reduction as ‘denaturalization.’ See Henderson: Illuminating Law.
