“John Sallis takes the storms and stirrings of the human imagination as a means to grapple with questions of existence, modern science, and the expansion of the universe. He provokes new readings of Plato, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, and Heidegger as he contemplates the unimaginable,”
“'Logic of Imagination' has the force of a systematic work that ranges from the storms of the imagination that we find on the first page all the way up to the hypermonstrous meaning of dark matter and the event horizon. A work of great expanse, it charts the way the imagination opens up the unimaginable, perhaps even unthinkable, character of our place in the cosmos. It is as if the first cosmologists were to write in light of what contemporary science has brought us to understand.”
— Dennis J. Schmidt, The Pennsylvania State University
“Mature, poetic, erudite, fantastical -- John Sallis' new book is a concrescence of all these, appropriately so, given the characterization therein of imagination as a gathering force which allows the simultaneity of disparates and eludes the logic of non-contradiction.
