The common sense understanding of action is causal, i.e. action is some change between being in condition A to being in condition B. The two static conditions of being allow people to differentiate distinct kinds of change, the being that embeds the change seemingly giving the change an intelligible structure and stable identity.
Can this definition be done away with or is it essential to understanding what is meant by 'action'?
If there is a sense of action that isn't already embedded in static being how can this action be referred to or talked about philosophically?
