Abstract

This article responds to Tania Zittoun and Alex Gillespie’s paper “Integrating experiences: body and mind moving between contexts.” It disambiguates the two meanings at play in the phrase “integrating experiences,” namely (a) the task or activity of integrating experiences, and (b) the kind of experience which serves this task of integration. The article combines two related objectives. First, to explore two examples of (b), first, what I call Proust's 'liminal experiences' and second, the notion of the liminal phase in rites of passage. Second, to make explicit the otherwise implicit assumption of a process ontology.
