Freud (1911) may have contributed to the misleading idea of contrasting imagination with reality by connecting in ‘Formulations on the Two Principles of Mental Functioning’ fantasy explicitly to the pleasure principle (see Modell 2006: 107). It is therefore not surprising that during the Controversial Discussions in the British Psycho-Analytical Society in the 1940s, Anna Freud adopts this usage. She places a strong emphasis on the role of the ego in her father’s conceptualization of the mind as consisting of Id, Ego, and Superego.
This feature has since become a classical notion in the understanding of fantasy. It found its way into the philosophy of Aquinas, who accepted it as self-evident in his commentary on De Anima, via Renaissance philosophers Ficino and Pico della Mirandola to the work of Kant. To get a closer look at this fundamental role of fantasy in human reality, I will extrapolate the discussion of fantasy to this pivotal thinker of Western modernity. 2 With Kant’s thinking, it is impossible to go beyond the formations that the imagination imposes upon our perception of things.
Or, to be more specific, the arbitrariness of the link between the signifier and the signified. There is no necessary, intrinsic, direct or inevitable relationship between the signifier and the signified. Horses could just as well be called bikes. Signification – what is signified by a signifier – has an arbitrary and conventional character, and is determined by social or cultural contexts. Although Saussure mentions certain degrees of arbitrariness, the (philosophical) implication is the non-fixed character of signification.
