Figure 3. Value polarities (Section VP). Presented in order of the number of cross-references to constructive and destructive value words (Sections VC and VD). Low order polarities have been omitted. Polarity names are only indicative. Most cited constructive value words are presented in Figure 1; destructive value words in Figure 2. See commentary. These words are used as a basis for relating values to world problems (destructive values) and organizational strategies (constructive values) in the Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential. These polarities are clustered by "value type" in Figure 4
