In this chapter I argue that neither the time symmetry of the laws of Newtonian physics nor determinism entails the time symmetry of the order of becoming of events. The time-directionality of individual processes cannot be defined in terms of increasing entropy, nor does it depend on a global direction of time. That process-tokens are future-oriented locally is not a consequence of thermodynamics, but is presupposed by it.
