More on dynamics: What Leibniz Intended (en)




by Lyndon H. LaRouche, Jr.

December 24, 2009

Since Leibniz introduced the original use and definition of the modern term „dynamics,“ during the last decade of the Seventeenth Century, that echo of the principle which had been known to Plato as „dynamis,“ became widely misused later, as today, under the rubric of „dynamics,“ in musical and other settings, for meanings, such as „sensation,““amplitude,“or „percussive,“ which are worse than ridiculous, when compared with the scientific meaning of the term. In effect, what is one of the most richly profound conceptions, was thus reduced to the banal. The issue so posed has essentially nothing to do with a mere grammarian’s definitions as such; the commonplace misuses of the term, tend toward some kind of mental disorder.

It is, also, as I have stated, repeatedly, that subsuming, unnamed, but, for me, clearly indicated, principle, the which is presented by the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley in the concluding paragraph of his A Defence of Poetry.
