Chapter 10 considers attempts to promote human potential, and analyzes the concepts of genes and environments underlying them. It contrasts the emerging dynamical systems framework with traditional “input-output” models of causes and interventions. The chapter explains why interventions have been disappointing because those underlying concepts are crude. Instead it indicates how the properties of individuals in dynamical systems stem from properties of the (social) system, not from deficiencies in individuals.
