Topic II: All That It Takes (ATIT): Sbeh as Compositional Change

All that it takes (ATIT): Sbeh as compositional change:

1. Compositional change vs. circumstantial change: BE can “make a difference” as mere circumstance or as actor make differences (via step making, compositionally, and step taking) that in turn make differences.

2. 3 A’s: ADEPT as a complement to ADOPT and ADAPT, in light of BE’s consequentiality as difference maker via composition.

3. ATIT is a capability (agency) model; compare to Responsibility (agent) model. Capability demands development; compare with capacity. Contrast ATIT with a motivational, nonspecific model such as “whatever it takes.”
