Escalation is the phenomenon of something getting more intense step by step, for example a quarrel, or, notably, military presence and nuclear armament during the Cold War. (Compare to escalator, a device that lifts something to a higher level.)

In psychology it is a change in behavior, usually from stable or acceptable towards unstable or unacceptable.
