Pronounced: KAH-luh-mate, verb
Notes: Nothing to do with collies… I have heard the word, but wasn’t sure of the meaning
The word enantiodromia is “the tendency of things, beliefs, etc, to change into their opposites.
This isn’t that old; it came into English in the early 1900s
Background / Notes
I am not sure that I believe that in enantiodromia; I know it happens, but I’m not sure that it always happens. An example would be a group fighting for freedom, and, once they win it, their leader goes on to become a dictator himself. The word is from the Greek enantio- (opposite) with dromos (running).
