Dialectical thinking refers to the ability to view issues from multiple perspectives and to arrive at the most economical reasonable reconciliation of seemingly contradictory information or postures.
DIALECTICAL ... Writing, arguing, thinking by means of dialogue, discussion, debate, whether between people or in one mind ... a method that systematically weighs contradictory facts or ideas with a view to the resolution of their real or apparent contradictions ... like looking at "both sides" of any issue, trying to fit them together.
DETERMINISM -- Philosophical doctrine that everything in the world including human action is the inevitable consequence of preceding states of affairs and natural Laws. Thus there is no human freedom. Can also be called Conditioning or Causation or Causality, and specifically, the Principle of Sufficient Reason. The most extreme variety is fatalism.
