First published in 1940, Sartre's The Imaginary is a cornerstone of his philosophy. Sartre had become acquainted with the philosophy of Edmund Husserl in Berlin and was fascinated by his idea of the "intentionality of consciousness" as a key to the puzzle of existence.

In psychology, Sartre is sure different than the "old shaman" Jung. Being the atheistic existentialist, Sartre doesn't think we can transcend projection. In fact, since all is subjective we can only know each other through projecting ourselves onto each other.

"When will the beloved become in turn the lover? The answer is easy: when the beloved projects being loved." Actually, that quote is from Being and Nothingness. Sartre has a lot of profound things to say about love. And yet, if love is not
if you want an introductory sartre text this is it- while he is figuring it out he writes it out. sort of like a precursor to being and nothingness. he is an excellent writer, i think his rhetorical skill serves his ideas rather than obscures, he is the easiest existentialist to read.
A very intuïtive phenomenology, with lush descriptions and clear intentions. Though it never quite reaches that level of phenomenological brilliance as Husserl, it still is a fun and perhaps inspiring read. His notion of nothingness is being developed here, in ways reminiscent of Hegel. It becomes a bit naïve - especially here, the parts on nothingness and the freedom that goes along with it are oh so odd; supposedly its crucial elements.

Quite a detailed account of the imagination from a philosopher's perspective. Mostly comprehensible. Introduces Sartre's famous depiction of consciousness as the confrontation with nothingness. The imaginary is the non-existant but attempts to postulate being.

Ficción y realidad (y sus relaciones) son los objetos de estudio existencial para Sartre, a través del retrato, el signo, los dibujos, los sueños, las obras de arte, lo imaginario.

Uma ótima discussão filosófica sobre imagem. Certamente um livro obrigatório para aqueles que usam a imagem como instrumento de trabalho.
My favorite Sartre book. A must read for artists.
