This echoes his third statement about the appropriation of analytical constructs for use in criticism, noted previously. The notion of 'empirical psychological fact' is, arguably, a largely theoretical matter, as it draws from the opposite assumption that its measurability is commensurate with functionality and usefulness. Coming full circle in this model of thought, this approach presupposes an economy yet again taken directly from Kant. On the subject of the legitimacy of thought systems, Kant (1974: 6) identifies, in his Critique 0/ Pure Reason, a tendency through which metaphysics: Is the only science which admits of completion - and with little labour, if it is united, in a short time; so that nothing will be left to future generations except the task of illustrating and applying it didactically.

Merleau-Ponty, more clearly than Jung, situates the complexities of the lived body in the historical, perceptual, linguistic, and interpersonal matrices that are meant by the term existence. Jung, more clearly than Merleau-Ponty, reveals the bodies imaginal matrices which inspire structure, limit, and transform existence in all its dimensions (historical, perceptual, and so on). I explore the complex relationship between these two traditionally opposed positions during the course of this book. What we have in the Jung and Merleau-Ponty articulations of the body and the imaginary is a clear continuity in terms of our experience of self and world - importantly, not a binary but a dialectical dehiscence (a bursting forth) of what it is to be in the world.
