Literature Review: Experience problem for Philosophy

This “Ten Problems for Philosophy in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. religion,
  2. knowledge,
  3. logic,
  4. nature,
  5. mind,
  6. moral,
  7. experience,
  8. identity,
  9. political,
  10. science.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

7 Experience

THE PROBLEM — The French word expérience refers to knowledge, expertise, experiment, attempt, practice, and even to taste. Ethnographic and constructionist approaches assist in understanding experiences. Trauma, as disruptive, persistent, and affective experience that occurs within the duration of our lives, often finds containment via displacement.

CONCLUSIONS — There is no need to decide whether to emphasize the personal, cultural or discursive aspects of experience. Bradley’s metaphysics is founded upon a belief in the functioning of the universe as a system. Husserl and Dewey were far from identifying experience with reality of individual mental life. Benjamin’s early ‘Program’ critiques the Enlightenment conception of experience as a means for gaining empirical knowledge. Different perspectives emerge on understanding and attitudes towards intercultural communication and exchange. Conceptualizations based on researched knowledge and theoretical frameworks work as tools for distancing and help to examine actions and professional development. Confucian learning experience renders aesthetics and religiousness in learning and moral transformation in life events. The term aevum questions the links between origin, order, and time, associating experience with spatial form. Both pragmatism and phenomenology conceive aesthetics as a philosophy of experience, and they agree on the decisive role emotional intentionality plays in its constitution. Fujita criticized Japan’s high-speed growth to restore ‘experience’ by preventing Japan rationalizing postwar.
