By Lynn Mayo

September 30, 2013

What We Mean by Experience by Marianne Janack. (Stanford University Press, 2012)

Social scientists and humanities scholars rely on first-person accounts of experience to understand how subjects construct their worlds. The problem they face is how to integrate first-person accounts with an impersonal stance. "In this engaging and highly readable book, Marianne Janack asks us to think about experience in a new and original way. She forges new connections across diverse philosophical and other scholarly positions, each time bringing the reader back to different ways of considering experience."—Lorraine Code, York University
