The Latin word decursus, which can be translated as “current”, came to our tongue What of course. The term refers to the temporal succession.

Of courseThe course, in this way, is the continuity of weather. The course of days, months and years imply a course, which is associated with the development of events, happenings, actions, etc.

For instance: “In the course of the battle we lost several soldiers, but we never stopped fighting”, “The course of the investigation surprised public opinion, which did not expect the father of the victim to be considered a suspect”, “I voted for this president with conviction, but the course of his government was disappointing me and now I think it would be convenient to change course”.

Suppose you talk about course of days. In this case, it is referring to the passage of the journeys. A physical pain that increases with the passing of the days, to mention one possibility, becomes more acute with the passing of the dates.

The historical course, on the other hand, it is built over the years. Their assessment usually requires a certain time distance to be able to analyze the facts with perspective.

The life courseMeanwhile, it is linked to the trajectory of life. This means that in the life course of a person there are multiple events, which are set in motion from the moment of birth.

The idea of vital course is used by the Spanish philosopher Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983). A chapter from his book “About man”, published in 1986, bears this title.
