The first of Buchler's books of systematic philosophy concerned with developing a conception of experience which "should be able to encompass aspects of human life reflected by the sciences and arts, by moral and religious attitudes, and by what takes place psychologically, socially, technologically." Buchler was an American philosospher in the pragmatic tradition of Dewey, James, and Pierce.
