From being to becoming: reflections on the enduring popularity of Kazantzakis
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
In this article, Kazantzakis' popularity over the years is briefly reviewed and it is argued that the two dominant approaches to his work, which could be described as ethnograpbic and philosophical-theological, respectively, correspond to the antithesis between being and becoming. The question addressed here is whether we can read his fiction in a new, way, and pass from the ontology of being to the contingency of becoming, following the example of the process theologians who brought him closer to postmodernism.
