Description - Force of Imagination by John Sallis
The author develops a 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, the author takes up this 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, John Sallis's project turns also toward elemental narture - our apprehension of light, sea, earth, and sky. Through an investigation of the ways in which sensible things present themselves, he highlights the role of imagination in our apprehension of the things around us.
