This project is an enquiry in the metaphysics of processes and its semantics. For processes we means here, in the most generic way, dynamic entities such as actions or oriented relations, as opposite to static ones, e.g., substances, things or objects. How can we understand, justify and account for the asymmetry ofbecoming and the consequent emergence of contingently stable objects (properties)in terms of dynamical entities such as processes? The project is, thus, articulated so as to answer the following questions: (i) Are processes, conceived as basic entities, compatible with the constraints imposed by fundamental natural sciences? (ii) What is the basic mechanism that provides an explicationof how emergent objectuality arises from processes? (iii) What are the consequencesfor any formal and semantic analysis of the emergence of objectuality?
