Abstract

This paper suggests that philosophy tells us something about and of the world, mostlyof our contemporary world, if we see it as a metamorphic world. Thus, in order to understand our world, I claim that philosophy needs to pose as an explicit question the problem of transformations, or of processes: in this way, transformation can be properly conceived. Then, my contribution aims to present a first “transformative” definition of five concepts or actions, as of some of their main implications or elements: to have an idea (Objective Idea, Subjective Idea, Invention-Idea); to express (to effectuate, to translate); to make experience (to sense, to feel, to imagine); to endeavor (to reorient, to persist); to conceive (to envision, to share). As an appendix, I give also a graphic representation of these five concepts.
