differentiate between


Senior Member
Hi, I am wondering about the exact meaning of the bolded phrase, a socialist program must differ from other aspects or must distinct the three aspects from each other.
"on the basis of the general analysis of capitalism, communism and humanistic socialism, a socialist program must differentiate between three aspects."
Humanistic socialism by Erich Fromm

    I take it that the three aspects are about to be listed. As it stands, the sentence does not tell me what those 3 aspects are.

    The three aspects must be individually distinguished and/or treated differently. They should not all be considered or treated the same, or lumped together as one.
