A social imaginary is defined as the ways that people imagine our existence, how we organize and interact with other, along with the expectations we have.

There it seemed that the eagle and I burned, and the imaginary flames so scorched me that I broke straight out of my dreaming sleep” (Purgatorio IX, 29-33).

    Out of my well-developed personality as a loner I became a talented (so I'm told) artist in an effort to self entertain and distract me from my lonely life.

I inquire into his general theory of the imaginary consciousness defined as a 'picture consciousness' and argue that it reduces the alterity of the imaginary object to sheer absence. As such, the theory of imagination does not allow us to bring the fundamental character of alterity to light. Still, we uncover a more adequate way of dealing with alterity in the context of the imaginary life. I show that the notion of the 'picture itself' allows us to conceptualize
