"EXEMPLAIRE H.C. No 23"."L'Imaginaire" ("The Imaginary") constitutes a cornerstone of 20th century philosophy and is one of Sartre's main philosophical works, founding his phenomenology and laying the ground for the ideas presented in his "Being and Nothingness" (from 1943). He examines the structure of the image and applies it to the phenomenological method, referring notably to the Husserlian theory of the intentionality of consciousness, making this one of his most relevant and noteworthy theoretical works and a main work of modern philosophy. "First published in 1940, Sartre's "The Imaginary" is a cornerstone of his philosophy. Sartre had become acquainted with the philosophy of Edmund Husserl in Berlin and was fascinated by his idea of the "intentionality of consciousness" as a key to the puzzle of existence. Against this background, "The Imaginary" crystallized Sartre's worldview and artistic vision. Here he presented the first extended examination of the concepts of nothingness and freedom, both of which are derived from the ability of consciousness to imagine objects both as they are and as they are not. These ideas would drive Sartre's existentialism and his entire theory of human freedom, laying the foundation for his masterwork "Being and Nothingness" three years later." (Review of the newest English translation, Routledge, 2004).Contat&Rybalka: 40/29 (pp. (77)-79)
