A Rosenfelsian Glossary

This glossary lists all of the key terms you'll encounter as you study the psychology of polarity. Two lists are given. The first contains the idiomatic primitives of Paul Rosenfels' vocabulary, words like creativity, development and polarity. The second contains words that are paired so as to describe a polarized aspect of human nature. These terms are called analogs.

An analog is not the same as an opposite. The opposite of true is false, but for Rosenfels the analog of true is right. Analogs describe equivalent characteristics of feminine and masculine personalities or the submissive and dominant aspects of civilized life. Where the parental function of the feminine is to nurture, for example, the analogous masculine function is to protect.

Two caveats. Because this system was not merely a tidy intellectual game for Rosenfels but rather a living breathing work in progress, over the many years that he published his ideas some analogs changed. Secondly, there are apparent inconsistencies when analogs are extracted from the text and arranged in columns as I have done here. In some paragraphs, for example, you will find a discussion of action analoged with a discussion of thought, while in subsequent paragraphs action might be analoged with feeling. Why is this?

Obviously, any psychologist worth his sheepskin knows the difference between thought and feeling. But Paul always reminded us that the language of psychology has largely been crafted by thinkers, i.e. by feminine personalities who were usually more interested in introspection than in describing masculine personalities that they found foreign and alien. As a result, we have far fewer ways to describe the world that masculine personalities live in than we should. Freud, one of the worst offenders, dismissed all masculine people as "narcissistic". To this day psychoanalysts continue to do irreparable harm to assertive people by telling them to get in touch with "inner feelings" of a sort that, by and large, they simply do not have. Hence the classic guilt-ridden American man of action.

Just remember that the kind of action that is analogous to thought is different from the kind that is analogous to feeling, and that which kind of action is meant is always made clear in context. This glossary, therefor, can get you started on your exploration of Rosenfelsian semantics, but to master all of these insights you'll have to do a fair amount of work to really get what's being discussed.

Basic Concepts
adaptation the individual's capacity to survive in his time and place; the component of life in which the individual is most in contact with forces beyond his control and comprehension.
analog any word or phrase describing a submissive or dominant characteristic of human psychology. The terms love and power, for example, are analogs of one another. see also: polarity.
civilization a degree of human social organization marked by the continual acquisition of new truth from the unknown and right from the chaotic, which in the form of knowledge and ability become the property of all men. "Civilization took its origin in the social ideas arising from the priest's view of life, and the institutions which developed out of the soldier's way of life. . . . Civilization rests on the specialization of men into thinkers and men of action, mutually interacting. In this world of specialized character, creative thought and creative action make a tremendous and sudden rise which bestows on man those unique psychological characteristics recognized as human." [Psychoanalysis and Civilization]
component one of four areas, capacities, moods or pockets of the human personality: creativity, adaptation, sex and celebration, and fun and pleasure. The creative component is characterized as three-dimensional; the fun and pleasure component is characterized as two-dimensional.
convention that lowest common denominator of truth and right to which society as a whole adheres, and which is the point of departure for (and is often scorned by), those with creative aspirations. antonym: creativity.
cover-up, depressive a defense mechanism who purpose is to conceal from the individual the depressive nature of his life-style.
creativity that human capacity which adds knowledge or ability to civilization's storehouse of truth and right. antonym: convention.
defense capability which protects and nurtures a growing individual but which can be outgrown. Biological defenses protect animals from destructive forces such as predators. A defense such as a hiding place used by a young animal may become unnecessary when full size is attained. Psychological defenses protect man from the depressive effects of shame and guilt in relation to other men. A defense such as compulsiveness or obsessiveness may be replaced by love or power in the course of psychological development.
depression, lifestyle a lifestyle whose structure prevents growth of the personality.
development the increasing capability to adhere to truth and right. synonym: growth.
exhaustion a marked diminution in capacities that are usually taken for granted; the result of failing to create a pocket for the two-dimensional component of the personality, which failure causes "creativity poisoning."
harmonious stress see: stress.
identity the individual sense of importance in a social context; identity is proportional to what you have to give other people.
mechanism any association between events in human nature i.e. causal mechanism; also used in the term defense mechanism to deride the mechanical quality of defensive behavior or thought.
see: stress.
parental behavior or feeling-tone that puts the growing quality of the other person in sharp relief; a necessary aspect of leading and teaching.
polarity the pairing of complimentary capabilities. In all organisms, physiological polarity connects the individual's sensory and motor capabilities. In vertebrates, sexual polarity connects the submission of the female with the dominance of the male. In civilization, psychological polarity connects femininity and masculinity between individuals regardless of their gender. see also: analog.
seriousness that inner psychological resource which enables an individual to focus effectively on his personal growth.
stress the depletion of available resources in the personality. Oppressive stress is unhealthy and should be outgrown. Harmonious stress is experienced in parenting. synonym: strain.
surpluses resources within the individual which facilitate going beyond immediate survival needs. Biological surpluses polarize between female and male and are expended in the rearing of young. Psychological surpluses polarize between feminine and masculine individuals and are used to build civilization.
three-dimensional a component which draws upon depth and vigor in order to reveal the individual's goodness and beauty. The purpose of three-dimensionality is to so relieve the individual of creative shame and guilt that he can immerse himself whole-heartedly in the rewards of two-dimensionality. Three-dimensionality is the price of two-dimensionality.
two-dimensional a component in which the individual ignores problems and avoids obstacles by focusing on the commonplace and ordinary pleasures and enjoyments of the here and now and so enjoy the contentment and happiness at hand, the purpose of which is to restore his vitality and recreate his aliveness and capacity for inexhaustible depth and vigor. The purpose of two-dimensionality is to so restore depth and vigor in the individual that he can again devote himself to the achievements of three-dimensionality. Two-dimensionality is the reward of three-dimensionality.
