Building a Definition for Synergy

Building a Definition for Synergy

(p.1) Part One Building a Definition for Synergy

Mark L. Latash (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The first part of the book starts with a few examples from everyday life to give a sense of what the word “synergy” means in its everyday usage. A connection to the meaning of this word in the religious literature is made, looking particularly at the classical writing of St. Gregory Palama. Further, a couple of example of inanimate objects are discussed that may fake certain aspects of synergies but ultimately fail to qualify. Examples of synergies and on-synergies from the animal world are discussed. The Part ends with a definition of synergy based on three necessary and sufficient conditions.

Keywords:   error compensation, stability, flexibility, cooperation, St. Gregory Palama
