Pensiero femminile e nuovo immaginario politico: a partire dalla nascita = Female thought and new political imaginary starting from birth


In this essay, starting with some of Françoise Collin's analyses and, as an example, the narrative that Western culture has made of birth, we try to define the concept of imaginary. From our analyzes, it emerges that imaginary doesn't coincide with the set of images to which it refers: in fact, it does not match with the utopia or dystopia of a future or symbolic world. The imaginary resorts to the symbol only to discards any objectifying understanding of the symbol itself, which hermeneutic reflection always makes possible. The imaginary allows the prophecy of consciousness, which is never external to its archaeology, as its creativity and praxis are never extraneous to its receptivity. Active life keeps the space of the imaginary and its transcendence opened and maintains this openness without ever reducing the real to the uniqueness of a model or an identity.
