The purpose of diagnosis is to explore an objective against the background of a strategic task. In accordance with this “military” definition, the dentist will not consider all the factors that may conceivably be relevant to the treatment, but only those that will help him to achieve the treatment objective. By the same token, the fact that a treatment objective can be achieved is not enough, but the dentist will only consider those objectives that will actually benefit the patient.
