Subjects: Anthropology
Written: 10 April 1989
Abstract: Lecturing at Barnard College in 1941, Ruth Benedict introduced a unique and important idea of synergy in a human social context. In this paper, striving towards a mathematical anthropology, we develop a complex dynamical model for her concept of social synergy, and discuss its application to international synergy, in the emerging planetary society of nations.
