Experiencing transformation: Learning from grief & trauma
 
Transformative experiences are thought to be transformative in two ways: One, they are epistemically transformative by giving us new kinds of knowledge, alongside new abilities to imagine and recognize kinds of experience that were previously inaccessible to us. Two, they are personally transformative, for instance by changing our core personal preferences and our understanding of who we are. In this talk, I focus on the transformative potential of grief and trauma and propose that they have a distinctive phenomenological profile. I propose that the analysis of grief and trauma can inform and extend the debate on transformative experience because both are backwards-looking rather than forwards-looking and focus on the subjective experience of transformation independently of the challenge for decision-theory. They also raise interesting questions about memory, narrative, and the experience of personal identity. At the same time, we can address existing problems in the philosophy of grief and trauma by applying the framework of transformative experience. This can also inform practical questions about how to understand and engage with people undergoing grief and trauma, including ourselves.
