This essay reflects on the origins of an edited book that brought seventeen au-thors together to define experience. We co-create the experience in the form ofa dialogue between us, the book’s two editors, and argue for the sake of wordsin the experience. We explore what it was like to start and lead a process thatsupported “making science” as a creative process, adding to what we learntand keep learning, about the editing experience from this new dialogic experi-ence. The premise of our dialogue is that, conceptually speaking, experience isthe whole process of sensing, perceiving, grasping, and interpreting — it is ourway of becoming aware of the environment. What follows is our conversationthat elaborates on the definitional premise with our book as the example.
