The meaning of ‘ tropisms’ and ‘matrix is given. Using Bion’s binocular vision, first, the growth and incidence of tropisms in the individual are described through the Oedipus narrative(Bion 1961 ,p. 7-8 ). These are culturally manifest in systems as suggested in the Sphinx narrative, influencing role behaviour. This is followed by a description of the new collaborative trend of contemporary business giving evidence of the mobilisation of the tropism for creativity.
