dc.description.abstractThe problem of persistence and emergence endowed with the limits of “actuality” is examined in the context of Nietzsche’s appropriation of both Heraclitus and Boscovich to forge a natural philosophy of becoming. The physics of Boscovich allowed a systematic refurbishment of Heraclitean notions of becoming over being while Heraclitus’s tensive dynamic of generation surpassed and overcame the limits of Anaximander’s indeterminate. Nietzsche’s early investigations bear overt signs of a formative philosophical outlook that seeks to marry the infinite and the sensible in a fashion consistent with his mature concept of becoming.
