L’excroissance des bords: désalignement transcendantal et phantasia

[The outgrowth of edges: transcendental misalignment and phantasia]

published online: 26. 07. 2022


This article seeks to enlighten the deep connection between three concepts: 1. The phantasia-affection, 2. What Marc Richir called, in his first book (1977) “the beyond of the Copernican reversal” and, finally, 3. Architectonics in its phenomenological effectiveness. Firstly, we introduce the concept of “transcendental misalignment”, thereby underlining the intrinsically hyperbolic structure of acts of representation. Mereology will then allow us to trace the difference between phantasia-affection (as a concrete whole) and the imagination-affect complex (as a fragmentable whole). Finally, it is the force of mereological concrescence that relates affection to its (mereological) exposure to a plurality of worlds. It is with the help of Rainer Maria Rilke and Antonio Machado, that we will illustrate architectonics as the multistratification of experience itself. The subject experiences indeed the irreducibility of registers, i.e., their fundamental non-concrescence.
