Eristics is an emotional philosophy which seeks to explain in simple terms what emotions are and how they work.


There are 36 results

Each eristic archetype result is good, an important and functional part of the emotional whole of humanity.

The emotions are all good, too. Names like "fear" or "pride" may be off-putting, but they're just characterizing the duality. The words themselves are associated with the highest peaks of a felt emotion, whereas a duality is active all the time.

The dualities are the three components of human experience. Everyone experiences all three. Only the order and expression is different between the archetypes.

Each archetype belongs to a subgroup which is named after the most internalizing archetype of that group:


eristic - adj - given to argument

duality - noun - has two expressions
