Abstract

PINEDA RIVERA, Diego Antonio. ARISTOTLE: BETWEEN AISTHESIS AND PHANTASÍA. Univ. philos. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.67, pp.131-164. ISSN 0120-5323.  http://dx.doi.org/10.11144/Javeriana.uph33-67.aayp.

This article examines the transition that, from sense-perception (aisthesis) to the imagination (phantasia), is done in Aristotelian psychology, specifically in chapter 3 of Book III of De Anima and De Insomnis. After a first review of the use that Aristotle does of these terms (aisthesis and phantasía), and after the examination of the reasons why he ascribes the latter to the perceptive faculty of the soul, it becomes mind the enlargement of the field of perception does Stagirite to from the consideration of psychological phenomena as perceptual and postperceptual appearances, deceptions and perceptual illusions and the “propositional perception”. To end, the mediator role between perception and intellect that meets thephantasía is stressed, and distinguishes between sensory imagination, one dedicated to the combination of images and, finally, an imagination of rational and deliberative stands.

Keywords : aesthesis; phantasia; koine aesthesis; phantasma; thinking.
