Abstract: The Freedom of Imagination
When we imagine something, we go beyond the frontiers of what is actually perceived and of what is clearly understood, enlarging the field of our experience and continuously modifying its contents. This is the reason why Eugen Fink defined imagination as “a universal modification of the whole life of our consciousness”. How should this universal modification be understood? What are its conditions of possibility and its purposes? Through the life of our imagination, we are capable of giving to our ordinary experience new shapes and orientations which are at the same time inspired by our actual experience and free from its particular determination in space and time. In my talk, I will focus on this double orientation of our imaginative acts, that offer at the same time an anchor in concrete experience and a critical detachment that nurtures its specific freedom.
