"Errances de l'imaginaire et transhumance de l'esprit" : approche méthodologique du champ de l'imaginaire

Abstract : This thesis is a piece of research from an anthropological and metaphysical view-point on psychoanalytical experience (both freudian and jungian) and on practical experience on psychological therapy. The basic claim is that "castration" is the ontological break which makes life (undefinable unless through its materialization) become part of history. That is to say part of duality the root of conflict, but also what gives birth to the drive of desire, a desire for reunification, a desire for unity. While we can only have a relative and partial perception of the world, desire reaches out for the absolute and only meets with answers that belong to the realm of imaginary. But there is an ariadne's clew which can be followed along the labyrinth of any existence from the beginnings of the world (myth of the origins) it's the path of symbolism. The claims of the present thesis are tested against the practise of psychoanalytical therapy and to such fields as the interpretation of free-hand drawing and painting or creativity generally. At the meeting-point of human sciences, this thesis is an attempt to combine "traditional" thinking and modern thinking to pave the way for the metaphysics of "re-surrection" through creative imagination. ...but philosophy cannot be encompassed by words when it means to be a quest of wisdom of the "philosophers'stone"!
