Justiniano – On Archetypes from Nature

“Instead of talking of the imprinting of the imagination as coming directly from “above” … this passage looks at it from “below,” as a process of ascent. In it can be seen a way of speaking of the transfiguration of sense-perception in the creative act. In other words, it suggests the possibility of not having solely to rely on the illuminations coming from above to depict the archetypes.”
