Being and Motion

Oxford University Press

Beginning around the fifth century CE, alongside the decline of the Roman Empire and the increasing decentralization of political power in the West, a new regime of motion began to take hold: tensional force. The task of Part III is to create a kinetic concept of force and explain the theological (descriptive) and kinographic (inscriptive) conditions of its dominant historical emergence in the West. Chapter 23 offers a purely kinomenological theory of the tensional motions that define the being as force. The thesis of the chapter is that dynamic being is defined by a material and kinetic tensional motion. The kinetic concept of force has three major kinetic features: tensional motion, triangulation, and relation.

Keywords:   tension, triangulation, relation, David Hume, causality, link, rigid, motion
