Aspects of Human Personality Dynamics
In this chapter I will use the theory of subself dynamics, and the psynet model, to provide new, system-theoretic analysis of the phenomena of romantic love and masochism. This may seem a bit of a digression, and it is, but I feel it is an important one. The next and final chapter will confront the topic of creativity, using the theory of subself dynamics, together with genetic algorithms, autopoietic systems, emergent patterns and other concepts from the psynet model, to construct a unified theory of creative dynamics. Before turning to creativity, however, it seems worthwhile to give an example of the application of subself dynamics and the psynet model to other personality phenomena which are less blatantly cognitive in nature.
