Language: English . Brand New Book. The Shakespearean image of a tempest and its aftermath forms the beginning as well as a major guiding thread of Logic of Imagination. Moving beyond the horizons of his earlier work, Force of Imagination, John Sallis sets out to unsettle the traditional conception of logic, to mark its limits, and, beyond these limits, to launch another, exorbitant logic-a logic of imagination. Drawing on a vast range of sources, including Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Freud, as well as developments in modern logic and modern mathematics, Sallis shows how a logic of imagination can disclose the most elemental dimensions of nature and of human existence and how, through dialogue with contemporary astrophysics, it can reopen the project of a philosophical cosmology.

Synopsis : Logic of Imagination forges a sweeping vision of the character of thinking and the expanse of the imagination. Continuing the philosophical project of his book Force of Imagination, John Sallis extends his consideration of the powers of the imagination beyond the horizons of his earlier work. Sallis takes the storms and stirrings of the human imagination as a means to grapple with questions of existence, modern science, and the expansion of the universe. Sallis provokes new readings of Plato, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger as he contemplates the unimaginable, perhaps even unthinkable, character of our place in the cosmos.
Critique: "A profound book that adds to the best of Sallis' many wonderful books. It should have great impact upon the sensibility and direction of philosophy in our times." --Dennis J. Schmidt, The Pennsylvania State University
