Much research has been done to explain in all ways possible our relationships with images. But what if the explanations that have been suggested so far were false or incomplete? Could it be possible that our relation to images not be linked to their content? Could it be possible that their abundant presence be in direct association with the structure of our subconscious? We will answer, among other things, to the paradox of the universalization of media, which are spreading throughout countries of different cultures. Indeed, the causes of the multiplication of images should be contextualized first.
By relying on J.-P. Sartre’s phenomenological approach on imagination we will explain how our neuroses are at the centre of our mental images. Finally, we will address the question of our psychic envelopes confronted with the multitude of images.
