My view is, in the first place, that experience (by which I mean the single and indivisible whole within experiencing and what is experienced have their place) is always a world. Not only must we say that with every experience there comes a world of experience, we must say that every experience is a world. What is given in experience is a world, and what is achieved is this given world made more of a world. What is given in experience is single and significant, a One and not a Many.
–Michael Oakeshott, Experience and Its Modes, p. 322 (1933)
