From map to journey: representations of inter-dimensional transfers in book form

Student thesis: Master's Thesis


This research is centred around experience and its relation to thinking. In some respects, experience and thinking represent two ends of the polarity of our relation to the world: experience represents the first person, intimate relation with things happen immediately around us, and thinking represents a more or less detached, usually not so spontaneous mode of interacting between ourselves and the world. However, in other respects, the relation between experience and thinking is never so simple: what we experience would definitely influence our thinking, and how and what we think would in return affect the way we experience and the content of such experience. This research seeks to better understand the complicated relationships between experience and thinking from available human knowledge, and by working on a case study, suggest a possibility of seeing the two ends of the polarity in a new way, namely “thinking within experience”.
