xbladefate25 What is the difference between "paradigm" and "dynamic"
It depends on which of those definitions you compare.
dynamic (1), for example, is like '(personal) interactions', and paradigm (2) is like '(scientific) theory'.
These are the two definitions that come to my mind when I see those words. I don't see much connection between them. They seem unrelated to me. I've done reading in the history of science, and that's where paradigm comes up a lot, so that word is more familiar to me than the noun dynamic.
