(p.138) 10 Desire without phantasia
The Brute Within

Hendrik Lorenz (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

The chapter offers decisive reasons for thinking that Aristotle does not take the view that desire-formation always requires some suitable exercise of phantasia, and that he is committed to rejecting the view that every creature capable of desire must be capable of phantasia. The overall interpretation that emerges yields a sharpened view of the role Aristotle assigns to phantasia in the production of animal movement. It also resolves two apparent contradictions in the De Anima.

Keywords:   Aristotle, animal, desire-formation, phantasia, movement
