Abstract

In this paper I will take advantage of the opportunity for an unapologetic work of theoretical psychology. In recent years I have been concerned with the concept of liminality. A liminal experience, in a nutshell, involves a temporary suspension of limits that permits a transition to a new set of limits. For this reason, liminality concerns the emergence of novelty just at the moment in which ‘something’ is in process of becoming. Here, more specifically, I want to help theorise the notion of cultural experience by bringing more clearly to light the distinctively liminal sources of cultural experience.
