  • Download Merleau-Ponty: une ontologie de l’imaginaire by Annabelle Dufourcq PDF

    By Annabelle Dufourcq

    Cette étude a pour objet los angeles perception merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire et l. a. manière dont elle conduit � repenser radicalement le réel dans sa totalité et, finalement, � imposer une ontologie dont l’imaginaire est le principe même, « l’institution de l’Etre ».

    L’imaginaire est une suggestion clef de l. a. philosophie de Merleau-Ponty, � half égale avec los angeles belief dont il se révèle être l’envers indissociable, los angeles half d’ambiguïté originaire. Parce qu’il s’intéresse d’abord � los angeles capacité que l’imaginaire détient de concurrencer voire de dépasser le perçu, Merleau-Ponty montre qu’il y a entre eux une homogénéité renvoyant � un fond commun qu’il qualifie de « mythique » et d’« onirique ». l. a. réflexion merleau-pontyenne élabore ainsi une définition originale et révolutionnaire de l’imaginaire comme possédant une véritable chair et comme lieu de présence décuplée des choses mêmes. S’ensuit alors l. a. nécessité d’élargir l. a. proposal de réalité en reconnaissant los angeles measurement et los angeles « texture » imaginaires du réel. Ainsi apparaît une query qui constitue l’un des principaux axes directeurs de l. a. réflexion merleau-pontyenne : quelle authenticité peut-elle encore être instituée au sein d’une lifestyles dont l. a. nature est apparentée � celle des songes et de l. a. comédie, et lors même que l’être des choses et des personnes n’est aucunement l’en-soi, mais, bien plutôt, l’ubiquité des ombres et des reflets ? L’un des enseignements remarquables que nous transmet Merleau-Ponty définit ainsi los angeles manière dont « l’imagination peut sauver de l’imagination ».

    This research focuses upon Merleau-Ponty’s belief of the imaginary and intends to teach how his philosophy ends up in extensively reconsider the entire fact and, ultimately, to set up an ontology whose very precept is the imaginary that Merleau-Ponty additionally defines as “the establishment of the Being”.

    The imaginary is a key proposal in Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy, on a par with notion, because the former proves to be the opposite part of the latter, its unique ambiguous half. Merleau-Ponty being essentially drawn to the capability of the imaginary to compete with - certainly to surpass - the perceived, he indicates that they're homogenous and proportion a typical foundation that he describes as “mythical” and “dreamlike”. therefore, in an unique and progressive means, Merleau-Ponty defines the imaginary as having a real flesh and as bringing tenfold elevated presence of the issues themselves. It follows that we've got to magnify the proposal of fact via spotting the imaginary measurement and “texture” of the true. This increases a query that is one of many major avenues in Merleau-Ponty’s inspiration: what sort of authenticity can nonetheless be instituted while the character of lifestyles partakes of that of goals and comedy and whilst the being of items and folks isn't in the slightest degree the en-soi, yet, as an alternative, the ubiquity of shadows and reflections? considered one of Merleau-Ponty’s so much awesome teachings defines the best way how “imagination can retailer from imagination”
