Understanding Imagination: Towards a New Humanitarian Paradigm

The article deals with the problem of imagination interpreted in a broad historical and philosophical perspective. it is shown that european metaphysics have for a long time neglected imagination in favour of reason. in contrast to this position, the necessity of considering imagination in a new way is postulated – as a leading creative force of the human being. in this connection, the ideas of henri Corbin and gilbert durand are analysed as a possible source of new ways of humanitarian discourse.


Key Words: imagination, image, sensual world, anthropological traject, mundus imaginalis.


The journal "LOGOS" is mainly devoted to scholarly studies in all areas of philosophy.
