Under the title Becoming within Being, Constantin Noica, one of Romania’s foremost philosophers, brings together two essays, one dating from around 1950, the other from 1980. The two works have in common the idea of becoming within Being, first as it results from the history of philosophy, secondly as an attempt to reconstruct the science of Being, ontology.

This book is published as part of the project of promoting the Romanian Philosophy, a project implemented by the Romanian Society for Phenomenology with the support of the Romanian Cultural Institute and “Life-for-Life Volvo Romania” Foundation.
