Merleau-Ponty : une ontologie de l’imaginaire

• Etude précise de l. a. perception merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire, de ses grandes lignes thématiques et de son évolution au fil des œuvres
• Mise en valeur du rôle clef joué par los angeles idea d’imaginaire dans l’ontologie de Merleau-Ponty
• Mise en valeur du lien entre los angeles notion merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire et, d’une half, son esthétique et, d’autre half, sa philosophie morale et politique.

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

L’imaginaire est une proposal clef de l. a. philosophie de Merleau-Ponty, à half égale avec l. a. conception dont il se révèle être l’envers indissociable, l. a. half d’ambiguïté originaire. Parce qu’il s’intéresse d’abord à 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 à un fond commun qu’il qualifie de « mythique » et d’« onirique ». los angeles 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 los angeles nécessité d’élargir los angeles idea de réalité en reconnaissant l. a. measurement et los angeles « texture » imaginaires du réel. Ainsi apparaît une query qui constitue l’un des principaux axes directeurs de los angeles réflexion merleau-pontyenne : quelle authenticité peut-elle encore être instituée au sein d’une life dont l. a. nature est apparentée à 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 examine focuses upon Merleau-Ponty’s notion of the imaginary and intends to teach how his philosophy ends up in appreciably reconsider the complete 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 thought in Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy, on a par with notion, because the former proves to be the opposite aspect of the latter, its unique ambiguous half. Merleau-Ponty being essentially attracted to the means of the imaginary to compete with - certainly to surpass - the perceived, he indicates that they're homogenous and proportion a typical starting place that he describes as “mythical” and “dreamlike”. therefore, in an unique and progressive method, Merleau-Ponty defines the imaginary as having a real flesh and as bringing tenfold elevated presence of the issues themselves. It follows that we have got to magnify the inspiration of fact through spotting the imaginary size and “texture” of the true. This increases a query that's one of many major avenues in Merleau-Ponty’s proposal: what sort of authenticity can nonetheless be instituted whilst the character of life partakes of that of goals and comedy and while the being of items and folks isn't really the least bit the en-soi, yet, as an alternative, the ubiquity of shadows and reflections? one among Merleau-Ponty’s so much amazing teachings defines the way in which how “imagination can keep from imagination”
