Description: The binary framework is a way of analysing any issue through only two lenses – “either” or “or.” While the binary framework has its uses in some forms of education, it’s usually tested, questioned and even avoided, in the wider social sciences and humanities, (of which journalism is a part.) This is since big, complex, social phenomena – like, say, the causes behind climate change, or India’s partition, or Hindu-Muslim sectarian strife in the Indian subcontinent – can rarely be fully explained with a reason or two, and certainly not with an “either” or “or.”
