Panexperientialism is the view that experience exists throughout nature and that mentality is not essential to it. In this chapter, the possibility of panexperientialism is examined by looking on its strengths and weaknesses from the point of view of a Liberal Naturalist. To understand the theoretical option of having a panexperientialist world, the author assumed that every subject of experience possessed a field of experience containing a variety of phenomenal qualities called qualitative field. Evidence for panexperientialism's existence and its coherence are also discussed in detail in this chapter.
