Perception is naturally surpassed toward action; better yet, it can be revealed only in and through projects of action. The world is revealed as an “always future hollow,” for we are always future to ourselves.
The right perception of any matter and a misunderstanding of the same matter do not wholly exclude each other.
Psychologists have hitherto failed to realize that imagination is a necessary ingredient of perception itself.
It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.
