What is becoming?

What Does becoming Mean

Becoming , originating in the French language, is a term that refers to something that can happen, happen or become . The notion, therefore, is associated with the change or mutation that occurs over time .

For example: "We have to prevent fanaticism from becoming terrorism" , "I did not think it would come to this, but I let myself be carried away by the future of the actions" , "The coach resigned after the course of events . "
In the same way, we have to establish that becoming is a word that is used frequently within the scope of History. Specifically, reference is usually made to what is known as historical becoming, which is used to record the changes that occur over time in society. It is, therefore, the continuous succession of events that determine the evolution of the human being and the world in which he lives.

The philosophy understands the future as a process of change which sometimes opposes be. According to this conception, reality is never fixed or static, but rather it is something dynamic.
What is now will soon cease to be and will become something else. The present is always ephemeral and becoming is nothing more than a process of being. That is why the ideas of being (fixed) and becoming (change) are often opposed.
For Heraclitus , becoming is the substance of being: everything is subject to time and continuous change. That is why this philosopher claimed that no person can bathe twice in the same river.
Closer in time, Hegel also analyzed becoming considering that reality is not static, but comes from dialectics. Becoming, in this sense, occurs from the intersection between a position known as thesis and another opposite, called antithesis , whose meeting derives involves becoming in a third stage: synthesis . Becoming is that passage between the thesis and the antithesis.
In addition to all the above, we cannot ignore the existence in Spain of a cultural association that responds to the name of European Becoming. It has a clearly National Socialist ideology and carries out various activities with the clear objective of recovering values ​​and ideas that it considers important for society. Thus, it carries out from conferences to cultural visits through cycles of continuous training.
On the other hand, Devenir is also the name of a publishing house promoted by Juan Pastor in the 1980s that is committed to reaching out to those unknown and unpublished authors who need an opportunity to show their professional worth. However, this does not prevent it from also launching works by important writers with prestige in the literary field. Specifically, among the pens that have been published with this editorial we could highlight Ángel García López, José Infante, Lasser Söderberg, Luis Antonio de Villena, Jorge Urrutia or Francisco Javier Díez de Revenga, among others.
