Interdependence

 

the mutual conditioning by components of the reality of their existence, the mutual dependence of their individual characteristics. A special type of interdependence is correlation, which is a strongly mediated interdependence. In the present-day literature of philosophical logic and specialized science the concept of correlation is used more frequently than that of interdependence.
