Is Motion Contradictory?

  1. Jun 1, 2006 #1
    For those of you who have studied dialectics, you'll know why I asked this. I know that in most instances, different forces affect an object undergoing motion including a pulling force and friction. But are there instances where motion is not contradictory?

    This belongs in the philosophy subforum, not classical physics.

    Meanwhile, could you explain what you mean by "contradictory"? And perhaps why dialectics are needed at all? From the perspective of a physics person, it looks very, very odd.
