On Poetic Imagination and Reverie by Gaston Bachelard

To give a comment about Bachelard, one must surpass his thinking, and that I cant do. When I first read this book, I felt like a kid who was being taught the wonder of beings. Bachelard is my fantasy guru, because he will take and show you that everything you perceive and thought as it is [traditionally:], is subject to a change.

In one instance he says a root is always a discovery [p.84:]. I agree with that, the primary reason of the establishment of religious fundamentalist is a belief that the root is already finished, all interpretations of holy writ must be built upon it, a slight deviation will be called heresy. A discovery doesnt mean refutation but extension and enrichment of the former.

You can not read Bachelard and dont come up with new words and phrase you coin yourself, thas the magic of his imaginary reasoning. This book is a collection of his scattered writings. Breath-taking!

The Stone is a forum for contemporary philosophers and other thinkers on issues both timely and timeless. Perhaps now more than ever, we spend our days immersed in language. We communicate—talk, write and read—through a burgeoning array of forms and technologies. But most of us rarely stop to think about how language works, or how come we succeed in getting our ideas across in words. It all seems to happen naturally. Poets, novelists, speechwriters or the merely curious sometimes confront these questions, but it is a job that often falls to linguists and philosophers of language. We sometimes try to get clear on the facts, so we can reach agreement on how things are.
