In this, his last significant work, an admired French philosopher provides extraordinary meditations on the relations between the imagining consciousness and the world, positing the notion of reverie as its most dynamic point of reference. In his earlier book, The Poetics of Space, Bachelard considered several kinds of "praiseworthy space" conducive to the flow of poetic i ...more

Recommends it for: poeticists, dreamers
Bachelard is one of my favourite writers. I cannot say that his books can be paraphrased or summed up- for they evoke the mood of perfect reading. It is the subliminal, midnight space filled with literate language and poetic phrasing. It is a dream written out so clearly as to be dreamt again. It is the possibility to breathe poetry.

One of Bachelard's other classics, The Poetics of Space: The Classic Look at How We Experience Intimate Places, is among the most important books in my personal lexicon. So much so, in fact, that I took it as a kind of guidebook for my thesis work in college, an installation entitled "The Room That Resembled a Reverie," which was in many ways an exploration and evocation of the kind of spaces Bachelard examines. Imagine my delight, then, to see he'd written a book called The Poetics of Reverie! ...more

"From the time a child reaches "the age of reason," from the time he loses his absolute right to imagine the world, his mother, like all educators, makes it her duty to teach him to be objective - objective in the simple way adults believe themselves to be "objective."

من الكتاب : " لقد فقدنااللغة الفاتنة .. كتب دافيد تورو : " يبدو أننا نمضي السنوات الراشدة بالاشتياق ، لقول احلاما طفولتنا ، فتتلاشى من ذاكرتنا قبل أن تتمكن من تعلم لغتها " ... لاسترداد لغة الخرافات يجب أن نساهم في وجودية الخرافي ، أن نصبح جسدا و روحا ، كينونة إعجابية ، أن نحل الاعجاب محل الادراك أمام هذا العالم . يجب أن نتعجب امام الأشياء لكي نتلقى قيم ما ندركه . و في الماضي ذاته ، أن نتعجب للذكرى

#التفضيلات تحول الذوق الادبي الى عادات

#رأس الريشة عضو مو أعضاء الدماغ

#هناك شواطئ اطمئنان في قلب الكواليس

#إن الذكريات التعيسة تنتزع على الأقل السلام من الكآبة

#أليست الجنة فوق ، في السماء ، عبارة عن مكتبة هائلة ؟

ينقسم إلى خمسة فصول:
١/ تأملات شاردة في التأمل الشارد حالم الكلمات
٢/ تأملات شاردة في التأمل الشارد نفَس-نفْس
٣/ التأملات الشاردة نحو الطفولة
٤/ " كوجيتو" الحالم
٥/ التأملات الشاردة و الفضاء الخارجي


فنّ الشاعر يُقدم فائضًا من القدرة التفسية لسرد أحداث الحلم، تضاف وحدة شعر إلى وحدة التأملات.

مُلهم مُلهم و أستطيع القول أنه من الكتب التي أيقظت تأملات الذاكرة لديّ.

Este é um livro sobre filosofia, mais que um livro sobre filosofia. É um livro sobre filosofar. Porque parece que Gaston Bachelard se encontrava em um tipo de fluxo de consciência quando escreveu este livro. Nada mais apropriado para um livro que se chama "Poética do Devaneio". Primeiro ele começa a explicar o que, para ele, é o devaneio. Depois, ele associa o estado do devaneio com o estado da alma. para então ir explorar, através de análises de muitas poesias que remontam às infâncias dos auto ...more

ولأن الطريقة المثلى تعلمنا ,عند الانتهاء من صياغة كتاب , أن نتذكر ونرجع الى الآمال التي عقدناها عليه عند البدء به , فأنا مقتنع بأنني ابقيت على جميع تألاتي في الأنيما anima أي النَفْس ( عنصر الأنوثة الأساسي ) الأنيما السهلة .
لقد كتبت هذا الكتاب حيب قواعد الأنيما أو الأنوثة وأتمنى أن يقرأ حسب القواعد نفسها. لكن في أي حال , ولكي لا يقال أن الأنوثة ( الأنيما ) هي كينونة كل حياتنا أود صياغة كتاب آخر يكتبه هذه المرة قلم مذكر , اي قلم أنيموس animus.

Leído muy por encima y saltando algunas partes que me parecían de un esencialismo misógino un poco rancio. Se me ha hecho un poco pesado: da mil vueltas a cosas ya dichas anteriormente o que se pueden simplificar bastante.

I felt like this book was very useful to me as an artist in that it encourages great respect for the imagination. It was also extremely thought-provoking.

B829.5 .B313 2004. Looking through the lenses of childhood, language, and cosmology, Gaston Bachelard explores the importance of daydreams, wonder, and idle thought. If that sounds like your cup of tea, check it out!

Книга за мечтанието. Книга, която те кара да мечтаеш. Мечтание в мечтанието. Без съмнение най-съдържателното четиво от месеци. Представи ми съществото, което нощем сънува вместо мен, върна ме в детството и същевременно обеща един ден да ми върне детството. Намаза слънцето с масло, свърза небето и водата с вертикално общение, очерта релеф около отпуснатото състояние. Затварям последната страница и с нетърпение започвам отначало.

16/06/2017 - ler um livro de novo é ler um livro novo.


Como todas as outras obras dedicadas ao devaneio poético, Bachelard encerra sua filosofia da imagem fazendo um apanhado geral do devaneio considerando a palavra (animus-anima), passando pelo devaneio de infância (não se trata de um senso comum, mas uma infância feita pela imaginação) e, finalmente, pensando o devaneio e o cosmos, fazendo com que as imagens dos elementos água, fogo,terra e ar sejam discutidas mais amplamente.

هذا واحدا من الكتب الثقيلة جداً، فهو كتاب علمي فلسفي عميق، وتطرق أيضاً لخبايا النفس وجموحها، وفيه يستعرض الكاتب موضوع التخيل الشعري عن طريق إخضاعه للمنهج الظاهري (الفينومينولوجيا).

ومن خلال فصول الكتاب نتلمس الطريق نحو مفاهيم غامضة حاول الكاتب شرحها مثل التأملات الشاردة، والحالم، والفضاء الخارجي.

I don't know why no one has recommended this book to me until my friend Eve recently did. The chapter "Reveries Toward Childhood" held a lot of meaning for me and definitely speaks to my work.

A beautiful philosophical pondering of the nature of reveries and dreams. I love Bachelard's writing and ideas so much.

A much fuzzier application of Bachelard's methods into the exploration of dreams and day dreams. I very much preferred "The Poetics of Space," But beautiful all the same.

Gaston Bachelard was a French philosopher who rose to some of the most prestigious positions in the French academy. His most important work is on poetics and on the philosophy of science. To the latter he introduced the concepts of epistemological obstacle and epistemological break (obstacle épistémologique et rupture épistémologique). He influenced many subsequent French philosophers, among them ...more
