Abstract

A general study of the change in the meaning and in the role of the term “experience” in the 16th and 17th centuries, and of its relationship with the concept of experiment, is still today one of the major desiderata of historians of philosophy and of science. What is proposed in this brief contribution is the result of the convergence of two main subjects: on the one hand, a focusing on the different approaches to the idea of experience, including a look at connections and distinctions between the various philosophical-natural currents; on the other, the highlighting of the fundamental passages of that epistemological change in the concept of experience that can be traced back to the beginnings of the slow but progressive affirmation of the idea of experiment.
