Abstract

The paper that follows intends to explore the interface between the imaginary and technique in relation to the question of human nature. The route that will be taken in this exploratory journey will be traced via the conceptual maps of morphology that began to appear with Goethe’s studies of nature. Following this cartographic tradition, I claim that human nature is a particular energetic field activated thanks to the relationship of two polarities: one is the imaginary and the other is the technique. Into this energetic field the life of the social-historical forms – in which each human community takes a specific place in the world; to be born, to live and to die cyclically. Therefore, this is the final destination of the journey that is offered to the reader here.
