THE IDEA OF REALITY OF IMAGINATION BY LEON CHWISTEK
Languages of publication
Leon Chwistek developed the so-called theory of multiplicity of reality. Firstly, hejustiﬁed his position with the ambiguity of comprehending reality and diﬀerent psychological attitudes in diﬀerent cognitive situations. The philosopher distinguished four fundamental types of reality. These are reality of emotions and sensations (sensory im- pressions), reality of imagination, reality of physical bodies (constructed by physics), reality of daily experience and things. In the presented paper the author analyses in detail one of them – the reality of imagination which is closely associated with changeable states of awareness. Reality of imagination can be triggered by the sequence of diﬀerent stimuli. Contemplation, meditation, yoga, dreams, drug-induced visions, subconscious states or mystical ecstasies are just a few examples. Each of the mentioned stimuli changes awareness, leading the man into states of diversiﬁed features, so also releases diﬀerent types of ideas. The author analyses them in detail and gives the examples of diverse expressions to reality of imagination in literature, culture and in the ﬁlm-making.
