A general framework for obtaining all possible factor analytic solutions, orthogonal and oblique, for a given common factor space is developed in detail. Interestingly, and seemingly paradoxically, any one of these solutions may be obtained by orthogonal transformations of selected matrices; thus an oblique solution may be determined by orthogonal transformations. Within the possible oblique solutions, two distinct categories of solutions emerge, a special case of the simpler of which apparently provides a definitive solution to the problem of independent, but correlated, clusters. Possible further specializations of the general approach to specific problems are discussed.
