The History
 of Experience

The History of Experience with its 9 turns is a study in experiential evolution from the Paleolithic to the present. Soon Taylor & Francis (New York) will publish it in the Routledge series on Cultural History.

The Summary-Page and following Theory-Page will provide an overview of the book’s basic ideas. I will start with the concept of experience and its evolving structure and continue with its implications for the human culture.
