This classical work written by the famous professor of English and literary science associated with the Constance School demonstrates two key literary categories from a historical and systematic perspective. The question lingering in the background is whether the fictive and the imaginary are of the nature of anthropological constants which can facilitate an insight into the basic need for imagination.
Iser sees literature as a mirror, as a human tool for self-transcendence and for learning about the world. This book offers his explanation of the conception of literary anthropology with exceeds the traditional borders of cultural or philosophical anthropology.
