- dynamic 1817 as a term in philosophy; 1827 in the sense "pertaining to force producing motion" (the opposite of static), from Fr. dynamique introduced by German mathematician Gottfried Leibnitz (1646-1716) in 1691 from Gk. dynamikos "powerful," from dynamis "power," from dynasthai "to be able, to have power, be strong enough," of unknown origin. The figurative sense of "active, potent, energetic" is from 1856 (in Emerson). Related: Dynamically.
