Signiﬁcantly, experience is best evidenced in life, far different from the cold substantialist bias in much philosophy. Life is about experiences, not primarily about substances, and certainly not primarily about some Great Domains of reality and perception that categorically exclude the possibility of life. Latour summarizes Whitehead’s argument, and Stengers’ commentary, thus: The modernist philosophy of science implies a bifurcation of nature between primary and secondary qualities; however, if nature had really bifurcated, no living organism would be possible given that being an organism implies to ceaselessly blur the difference between primary and secondary qualities.
One way of putting Whitehead’s philosophy in different terms is that, given its emphasis on process and experience, it ﬁnds relations to be more fundamental than things. This is a theme you will ﬁnd in many contributions to this volume. “Relationality,” “complementarity,” “intersubjectivity,” “experience”: these are different terms than monism—we are not solving the problem of Two by retreating to the simple world of One. By bringing the human experience into science and religion, we have not so much gone from two to three or two to one, but rather have found a point somewhere between one and two, somewhere between the denial of difference (and hence the possibility of relation) that so bedevils monism and the metaphysical gap that deﬁnes dualism.
