[Xmca-l] Re: Hegel's imagination

Peter as we become aware of the movement of the imaginal (and in particular the movement to imagine the imaginal as representational) 
Piaget was also profoundly in debt to Kant. 

Dewey, stepping back from Hegel   reflected on how Hegel imagined the workings of reason (through) history. Reason is (operative) AS contributing to more stable and understandable (structures).
In dewey's own words outlining hegel's historical imaginal:

(in intellectual and practical effect the IDEA of process ABOVE that of fixed origins and fixed ends, and PRESENTED the social and moral ORDER as well as the intellectual AS a (scene) of becoming ....)

Becoming aware of the movement of the imaginal including towards impressive systematic, structural reason that becomes points of departure for representational presentations.

I hope these fragments honour the movement of the representational including the structural, ordered, and systematic. I am suggesting they do (reveal) the movement of the imaginal. However, I notice how the imaginal does not come to rest in the images and ideas of models, structure, order, and systems of representation.
There is a restless quality that sees this movement as a seeing (through) by stepping back from the structures, orders, and models.
Acknowledging the necessity of structures and systems as the way the imaginal is (revealed) through time.
However, not residing in these necessary structures and systems which reveal the way/movement of the imaginal.

What an amazing excerpt!  From this one passage alone I can see the strong
influence that Hegel had upon Piaget.

Thanks for bringing this section of The Subjective Spirit to attention.
It's chock-full of interesting thoughts.
