Thermodynamics of physical systems is a well defined and well established body of knowledge.  "It is a subject of great generality, applicable to systems of elaborate structure with all manner of complex mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties." [Callen, 1960, 7].  In this section I will extend the concepts and general plan of the thermodynamics of physical systems to the thermodynamics of relation systems.  In this I will parallel H. B. Callen's text "Thermodynamics" [1960].  I will quote Callen extensively.  Even where I do not specifically quote Callen I am still copying the conceptual plan of his text very closely.   

I will begin with a general response to the question, "What is thermodynamics of human relation systems?"
