The poetics of space by Gaston Bachelard( Book )

200 editions published between 1957 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 3,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A beloved multidisciplinary treatise comes to Penguin Classics Rare is the work of philosophy that invites both the casual reader and the academic. Rare, too, is the text so universal that luminaries across an array of fields lay claim to it. Yet, that is precisely the case with Gaston Bachelard's The Poetics of Space. A rumination on the spaces we inhabit and the dreams and memories that fill them, this seminal work continues to be studied and enjoyed by philosophers, architects, writers, and literary theorists alike. This new edition features a foreword by Mark Z. Danielewski, whose bestselling novel House of Leaves drew inspiration from Bachelard's writings, and an introduction by internationally renowned philosopher Richard Kearney who explains the book's enduring importance and its role within Bachelard's remarkable career
The poetics of reverie : childhood, language, and the cosmos by Gaston Bachelard( Book )

88 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 imagery. In "Poetics of Reverie "he considers the absolute origins of that imagery: language, sexuality, childhood, the Cartesian ego, and the universe. Approaching the psychology of wonder from the phenomenological viewpoint, Bachelard demonstrates the aurgentative "potential "of all that awareness. Thus he distinguishes what is merely a phenomenon of relaxation from the kind of reverie which "poetry puts on the right track, the track of expanding consciousness""

13 editions published between 1971 and 1987 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selected, translated, and introduced by Colette Gaudin. Gaston Bachelard was considered one of the great minds of our times. His prodigious ability, displayed in twenty-three books and expressed in subtle, suggestive prose, has produced the single most important body of thought in the recovery of imagination in the twentieth century. These passages from his major works, their thematic organization, the authoritative prefaces by Colette Gaudin which place his work in the stream of current ideas, as well as the Bibliography of writings by and on Bachelard, together provide a concise introduction and brilliantly capture Bachelard's genius. --Spring Publications
La terre et les rêveries du repos by Gaston Bachelard( Book )

68 editions published between 1948 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 632 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les rêveries de lʹintimité matérielle exposent comment lʹimagination sʹefforce de parvenir à lʹintérieur des choses avec une large étude des grandes images du refuge. Dans lʹintimité "querellée, le philosophe étudie les images qui, sous la surface paisible, évoquent la matière agitée Lʹ"imagination de la qualité" introduit dans les objets la tonalisation du sujet imaginant. Ce sont les grandes images du refuge : la maison, le ventre, la grotte qui forme la matière des trois chapitres de la seconde partie. Abondant en pages savoureuses, en découvertes multiples, en aperçus ingénieux, ces cinq ouvrages forment une somme des fondements subconscients de la vie de lʹesprit. Ils établissent le rôle décisif, exhumé par un véritable philosophe des profondeurs, des intuitions sensorielles spontanées dans toutes les activités intellectuelles et spirituelles. Non seulement ils ouvrent à la psychanalyse, loin de la spéculation abstraite et des classifications discutables, un ample et solide domaine, mais ils redonnent leur pleine valeur à lʹactivité littéraire et singulièrement poétique en tant que découverte du monde et du soi. -- Publisher description

La dialectique de la durée by Gaston Bachelard( Book )

60 editions published between 1936 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Dialectic of Duration Gaston Bachelard addresses the nature of time in response to the writings of his great contemporary, Henri Bergson. For Bachelard, experienced time is irreducibly fractured and interrupted, as indeed are material events. At stake is an entire conception of the physical world, an entire approach to the philosophy of science. It was in this work that Bachelard first marshalled all the components of his visionary philosophy of science, with its steady insistence on the human context and subtle encompassing of the irrational within the rational

Bachelard sʹattache ici à rassembler et à analyser des éléments épars du psychisme aérien, dʹabord tel quʹil se manifeste dans les rêves de vol point de départ de nombreuses croyances et dʹinnombrables développements poétiques. La "poétique des ailes" permet au philosophe dʹatteindre le sens profond de lʹapparition des créatures ailées dans la poésie -- oiseau, âme, ange -- et particulièrement chez William Blake. Le livre se termine sur deux conclusions, lʹune sur lʹimagination littéraire considérée comme une activité naturelle, la seconde sur le profit quʹaurait une philosophie du mouvement à se mettre à lʹécole des poètes
