The notion of experience refers to two distinct meanings. On the one hand, it is a situated, cognitive and affective experience, of a phenomenological nature (concept of Erlebnis); on the other hand, it aggregates all the interactional processes that constitute our relationship with the world over time, and the skills thus acquired (concept of Erfahrung). According to the first meaning, experience is immediate and embodied, whereas the second represents the crystallization of a sum of event-based experiences. This pairing creates an interplay of tensions between experience, its appropriation and its integration over time.
