Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning: A Philosophical and Psychological Approach to the Subjective

Review of Metaphysics 16 (4):800-800 (1963)

In this phenomenological approach to meaning, the author defines his task as one of taking account of the kinds of relations the logical order can have to the preconceptual order. This preconceptual order is represented by a pre-logical activity which is called "experiencing." There is experiencing of meaning as well as of things. This "experienced or felt meaning" is said to be as important a dimension of meaning as the traditional modes distinguished by philosophers, e.g., denotation, connotation. Apparent throughout is the author's concern as a psychotherapist to find theoretical foundations for clinical methods.--R. H. K.
