What is the Meaning & Definition of transition

The transition term is the term that is typically used to define change, transfer, progressive evolution from one State to another. The Word may be used to describe a State of mind (for example, the transition between joy and tears) as well as for physical issues or scientific (for example, when we talk about transition of matter from one State to another). Finally, the idea of transition can also be applied to more complex issues such as social or historical events that mean major changes in the lives of the people and that in the majority of cases, can take a long time. When we talk about transition, we are always giving to understand that we are talking about something that changes or is altered in its essence of progressive and non-violent way it can be a revolution.
The transition word comes from the Latin term tránsitio, which means 'transfer', 'shift'. Thus, the word transition is used to refer to all acts involving a change, an evolution or a passage from one State to another.
If we talk about the historical transition, this is very important since since the beginning of humankind man has gone through various stages from more or less violent transitions. A clear example of transition is when man invented agriculture and can thus pass or transitioning between a nomadic lifestyle (much more insecure and unstable) one sedentary (a change which improved their quality of life without a doubt). Other transitions in the history may also changes political (such as the transition from monarchy to democracy), social (the change of roles among social groups), economic (the transition from a slave to a feudalista and then a capitalist) and even cultural (when talk about the transition of mentalities).
Transitions always involve some kind of adaptation that varies depending on the type of change that we do. New features of what emerges often not known then the human being begins to go through a long process of adaptation to them.
