In the process view, the human is always in the state of becoming, where being is but one aspect of becoming. This does not mean that we are passive beings defined and formed by the environment. On the contrary, we are active beings seeking to define ourselves and redefine and reform the environment through our interactions with it. Our individual purpose defines our emergence in the world because it shapes how we relate to the world and create meaning, and how we form that world in turn. Heidegger stated that the future, which presents the potentiality-for-being, is the most important temporal dimension because as we project our future in the present, both our present exercise and past experience can be seen in a different light (Heidegger, 1962).

In this regard, “to experience is to create, to create is to experience,” and at “each moment I am a new experience” (Hartshorne, 2007: 77, 81). When we make a decision, we incorporate, directly or indirectly, all past experiences. With decision, the event is actualized and becomes an object that is available for experience by future entities. Our experiences are not self-contained substance, but a process involving relationships (Jungerman, 2000: 1–14). In short, we are what we have experienced so far, and how we relate to the world is based on who we are.

Broadly speaking, “aesthetics is concerned with knowledge that is created from our sensory experiences” (Taylor and Hansen, 2005: 1212). Strati (2003) argues that aesthetic knowing is a form of knowledge that persons acquire by activating the specific capacities of their sensory-perceptive faculties to make aesthetic judgments in their day-to-day lives within organizations (Strati, 2003: 54). Since The Characteristics of Knowledge 13 Nietzsche (1967), there has been broad philosophical agreement on the notion of aesthetic knowing through experience and on the argument that other forms of knowing derived from rational thought depend on and grow out of aesthetic experience (Dewey, 1934; Gagliardi, 1996).
