Hermann Haken

Haken popularized the concepts of {{enslaved-states}} and 'synergetics'. The notion of 'enslavement' is similar to the idea of {{attractor-statesbasins}}, wherein a system will tend to gravitate towards a particular regime and then remain in that state unless there is a system {{perturbation}}.
