Trial, practice, proof, or test; esp. frequent trial or a series of trials; observation of a fact, or of the same fact or events happening under like circumstances; continued and varied observation; "Having broadly laid down the principle that all the materials of our knowledge come from experience, Locke goes on to explain his theory more particularly."-J. D. Morell: the knowledge gained by trial, or repeated trials, or observation; practical acquaintance with any matter by personal observation or trial of it, by feeling the effects of it, by living through it, and the like; practical wisdom taught by the changes and trials of life; "To most men experience is like the stern-lights of a ship, which illumine only the track it has passed."-Coleridge; individual or particular instance of trial or observation; "This is what distance does for us, the harsh and bitter features of this or that experience are slowly obliterated and memory begins to look on the past."- W. Black; "The like holds good with respect to the relations between sounds and vibrating objects which we learn only by a generalization of experiences."-H. Spencer: experiment.

A knowledge of things acquired by observation. In medicine, this knowledge can be obtained both by the practitioner's own experience, and by that obtained from tradition and from books. To profit by experience requires a mind capable of appreciating the proper relations between cause and effect; and hence it happens, that false experience, Experientia fallax, is extremely common; and that a man had better, in many instances, trust to that which he has learned from others, than to his own fallacious observation. The union of accurate observation by the physician with that handed down by medical writers constitutes perfect experience, so far as it is attainable in any individual case.
Experiment, Mariotte, experiment of.
