(p.159) Introduction II Kinos, Logos, Graphos
Being and Motion

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the central argument of Book II, which is that each historical period under investigation, along with its dominant description and inscription of being, follows a precise kinetic pattern that allows us to put forward an original kinetic ontology of space, eternity, force, and time. The structure of Book II is ordered accordingly. It is divided into four parts, corresponding to the four dominant historical regimes of motion that define ontological practice. Each historical regime marks the emergence and rise to dominance of a certain descriptive name for being in Western ontological practice. Further, each part is divided into three sections, each corresponding to a kinetic dimension of its ontological practice: kinos, logos, and graphos.

Keywords:   Kinomenological, kinology, logos, kinos, graphos, ontology, inscription, description
