The Fourth Quadrant - Johnson (2010)

For anyone who has read Steven Johnson's Where Good Ideas Come From, you might appreciate that for me it was a case of take-two from the previous post 'The adjacent possible'. How could I not include the chapter "The Fourth Quadrant" especially as the book's 'Conclusion'?

If title was one take, the other was "Oh! How does this relate to h2cm?" After reading and reflecting things fell into place. Johnson wants to represent the history of innovation (no less) using roughly two hundred of the most important innovations and scientific breakthroughs from the past six hundred years, starting with Gutenberg's press, Einstein's theory of relativity, the invention of air conditioning through to the birth of world wide web (pp.218-219).

There are three figures in the chapter spanning 1400-1600; 1600-1800; 1800-present. Johnson's diagram for 1800-present (p.229) is in-part 'mapped' to Hodges' model below.

A few insights into my reasoning. In the Interpersonal domain I am emphasising an individual's primary (and original) motivation for their work and what follows. In the sciences - here PROCESSES are central. As with all models this is an idealisation, so there is a lot of overlap.
