Christian Tractatus

(Text as at 12/08/2007 10:17:46)

By experience, I mean observation of the world, whether studied or casual.

  1. Since I am part of the world, experience of the world includes the observation of my own thoughts & feelings. I refer to this as subjective experience, in opposition to objective experience which applies to objects outside myself (paradoxically including my own body).
  2. The above remark should not be taken to mean that I believe in a disembodied mind or soul. I am simply distinguishing between sense experience and other experiences (eg. dreams, thoughts, feelings, pleasure, pain etc.).
  3. Nor should the term subjective necessarily be understood in the pejorative sense of less reliable.
