But this inability, this silence, this immobility is already a certain form of activity. Later, I will cry, talk to others, etc. As such, primal passivity cannot be thought in complete isolation from our current flow of experience. Otherwise it would become an abstract stratum bearing no relation to our daily stream of pre-conscious and conscious experience. Now, what I want to do is show how that primal experience of passivity is all the more concrete in that it is both radical and originary. Its specific concreteness has to do with our on-going experience of self-opacity: I am observing a scene on the street and suddenly, something happens that makes me feel uneasy because it surpasses my understanding of the situation; or I am discussing something with a friend and find that my efforts at clarification are obstructed by ineliminable fragments of obscurity.

Furthermore, interpreting the primary mode of givenness of passivity as an originary figurative synthesis makes it possible for us to side-step the aporetic debate on Husserlian phenomenology as a tension between realism and idealism. Building upon what has been accomplished so far, we will offer an account of the very possibility of a truly phenomenological "passive imagination" by proceeding in the following way: First, we need to be reminded of the precise meaning of imagination as a specific act of consciousness.
