    It's plural if you ask me. The dynamics ... let


    Suggest: The inherent dynamics of the archetype allow it to act as an organising or arranging principle ...

    Oxford lists it as a plural noun treated as singular, M-W says its a noun, plural in form but singular or plural in construction. To me, it's akin to "physics" and similar words. Singular or plural depends on how it is used. In this case, I agree with #1 regarding plural.

    In this case, I agree with #1 regarding plural.

    So do I.
