Восприятие космоса. Что такое имагинация или алхимический код в Русских ночах Владимира Одоевского
The sense of space, or what the imaginationis. Alchemical code in the novel The Russian Nights by V. Odoevsky
The novel The Russian Nights 1844 proved to be a kind of philosophical and pictorial manifesto of Vladimir Odoevsky. The idea of ‘totality’ целостность, conceived as a structure of internal and external world at the same time, was presented by the author in the concepts drawn from a variety of philosophical and esoteric systems. One of these forms — alchemical imagination — is used in the article to interpret the phenomenon of correlation that exists between the senses and the creative perception of space.
