I am doing a general overview of different kinds of dualities present in science. I am quite well versed with the dualities in physics and mathematics. I was searching for dualities in chemistry, biology and other sciences. In that process, I encountered "mechanistic duality" in chemistry. For instance, see  and .
But I am not able to find a good introduction or description about "mechanisitic duality". It would also be nice if someone can briefly explain what this duality mean. Does someone have clue about its history (who coined it first and for what purpose)? Also, please point me to relevant book/paper which discuss this.
