According to phenomenology, on the one hand, to perceive is already to imagine and free the ‘I’ from its structural petrification related to himself and against the world; on the other hand, to tell one’s own life, is, instead, to pretend to prepare and repair the irrevocable instant of death here and now, by images, and to represent the past as irremediable and necessary is already to picture oneself picturing himself as like a second body of stone, unalterable as a statue and fascinating as an idol.

Abstract

According to phenomenology, on the one hand, to perceive is already to imagine and free the ‘I’ from its structural petrification related to himself and against the world; on the other hand, to tell one’s own life, is, instead, to pretend to prepare and repair the irrevocable instant of death here and now, by images, and to represent the past as irremediable and necessary is already to picture oneself picturing himself as like a second body of stone, unalterable as a statue and fascinating as an idol. Contriving the writings of Baudelaire, Proust and Leiris with the philosophy of Heidegger and the magic mentality, in the mid-forties, Sartre, Lévinas, Blanchot and Bataille discuss ontology, aesthetics and ethics of the image, clashing harshly on the role of the imaginary in relations between art and death, existence and destiny, the possible and the impossible.
