What is becoming? Is there a philosophy of becoming? And if there is, how we experience it in our times?
“There are many philosophies of becoming formulating diverse methodological, epistemological, moral, cultural, social, economic, political, environmental, and ontological orientations.” (Douglas Allen)
The Time is Now. Essays on the Philosophy of Becoming brings you a few examples and presents a new perspective on the philosophies of today. Hopefully, this collection will inspire many researchers in the vast area of humanities, and will be a useful tool for those interested in the philosophy of becoming, in particular.
