SCHNEIDER, Daniela Ribeiro  y  ANTUNES, Larissa. The imaginary function by the use of psychoative substances: Jean-Paul Sartre's contribuitions. Rev. NUFEN [online]. 2010, vol.2, n.1, pp. 66-91. ISSN 2175-2591.

Studies in anthropology have shown that almost all civilizations have always sought ways to induce it. The imaginary experience has been highly valued throughout time and in all cultures. The objective of this study is discussing this kind of experience stimulated by psychoactive substances, based on the theory of the imaginary by Jean-Paul Sartre. The imaginary experience is a core aspect of the human psyche, because its unrealizing function allows the subject to transcend a given situation toward an end and, therefore, transcend its reality - which, on one hand may be "transforming" and, on the other hand, "alienating". It all depends on the relation the subject have with the world, its anthropological context, its concrete situation in the life of relationships, the structure of its personality and on the role the imaginary life may play in this context.

Palabras clave : imaginary experience; psychoactive substance; Jean-Paul Sartre; phenomenological and existentialist psychology.
