In "Force of Imagination", John Sallis develops an original systematic philosophical project from the vantage-point of philosophy at the limit, the point at which the classical distinction between the intelligible and the sensible is inverted and displaced. Faced with the deconstruction of this distinction around which all philosophy since Plato has circulated, Sallis takes up the task of maintaining an orientation to the sensible, while developing a new interpretation that is not based on the opposition between mind and matter.In turning toward the sensible, Sallis' project turns also toward elemental nature - our apprehension of light, sea, earth, and sky. Through an investigation of the ways in which sensible things present themselves, Sallis highlights the critical role of imagination in our apprehension of the things around us. Reorienting philosophy to imagination produces striking insights into the ways we experience ourselves and other human beings and the ways in which imagination becomes poetic and artistic. This bold investigation of imagination opens news directions for understanding identity, poetics, and art.
