Biography of Author

The neo-Roman French ethnopsychology (character) is discussed in
Therivel's GAM/DP Theory of Personality and Creativity.

French Ethnopsychology

The French as UP Neo-Romans

The above is the title of chapter 5 of volume 2 of William A. Therivel's The GAM/DP Theory of Personality and Creativity (G stands for genetic endowment, A for assistances of youth, M for misfortunes of youth, DP for division of power, UP for unity of power). For an introduction to the GAM part of the theory click "Introduction to GAM"; for an introduction to the DP part click on "Introduction to DP".
In this website, the reader is also offered a shortcut: The GAM/DP Synopsis and an expanded version, The GAM/DP Summary of volumes 1 through 4.

Hereafter I report the table of contents and the first part of the Introduction of this long chapter.

This chapter is divided into the following sections:

     1. Introduction
     2. The Roman Roots
     3. The Anointed King
     4. Rhetoric in Antiquity
     5. Rhetoric, Logic and Formalism in France
     6. Droit
     7. Mistrust
     8. The French as Baroque Hedgehogs
     9. The Neo-Roman Emperor Napoleon
     10. In Full Praise of Raison and Rhetoric?
     11. But how Could France Have Done so Well Under UP?
     12. Contra the Neo-Roman Aristocratosis of Jacques Barzun's From Dawn to
          Decadence: 500 Years of Western Cultural Life


     This chapter is devoted to a Unity of Power (UP) interpretation of a limited number of evolving aspects of the French ethnopsychology (leaving aside regional differences). Within the confines of this interpretation, the French people are seen as UP neo-Romans, in which the modifier UP is a constant reminder that I will discuss only those aspects of the French ethnopsychology that I see relating both to France's long past (the Gallo-Roman first, and that was already under the shadow of the unity of power) and to the impact of the unity of power of her kings, noblemen, and churchmen.
