Dualism: A form of binary thinking that divides the world into good versus evil with no middle ground tolerated. A famous historic dualist movement was called Manicheaism. In dualism there is no acknowledgment of complexity, nuance, or ambiguity in debates; and hostility is expressed toward those who suggest coexistence, toleration, pragmatism, compromise, or mediation.
