About the book:
Philosophy has traditionally considered reality as a set of static objects. Tina Röck transcends this understanding to explore the realistic potential of relational and dynamic ontology. These explorations are both complex and problematic as we attempt to reconceptualise being, truth and knowledge as processual.
To navigate this thinking, Röck takes a new phenomenological path into a realism that discloses the world as temporal and relational, without dismissing the epistemological difficulties surrounding genuine change. A fundamental challenge to outdated ways of thinking in our rapid, interconnected world, this book provides a provocative and contemporary understanding of our temporal reality.

What people say about Dynamic Reality
The ambition of this book is breathtaking: nothing less than the articulation of a new metaphysics. More astonishing is the ease with which Tina Röck persuasively achieves this feat, drawing on resources ancient, modern and contemporary to reformulate the relation of thinking and being. Remarkable.
