The Invisible Image: Symbol, Abstraction, Concept - This essay interprets the notion of image as being the correlate of a symbolic experience. From this perspective, it is possible to discuss philosophically the reality of the image, while avoiding either reducing it to a neuronal phenomenon, or positioning it in a non-conceptual dimension. The image constitutes a central moment in the genesis of objectuality, which is immanent to representational intentionality. It constitutes the hinge between visible and invisible, represented and non-representable, spatiality and temporality. A conception of image which is vital and capable of producing figures constitutes a specifically philosophical instrument capable, on the one hand, to clarify the dynamics of representational phenomena, and on the other the reality of the creation of the work of art, especially in our time. The images that art is looking for are those which lead to the dimension of primitiveness, understood in terms of reality as of a vital genetic dimension, and in those of abstraction as the emergence of a form.

Key words: Image, Symbol, Representation, Art, Abstraction, Sensibility.

Parole chiave: Immagine, Simbolo, Rappresentazione, Arte, Astrazione, Sensibilità.
