DE VIVANCO ROCA REY, Lucero. Knowledge from phantoms: fiction and imaginary. Alpha [online]. 2009, n.29, pp.217-232. ISSN 0718-2201.

In the field of literary theory, this article articulates two concepts: the imaginary (defined following Gilbert Durand's and Cornelius Castoriadis' theorical proposals) and fiction. This paper discusses how the imaginary perspective confronts recurrent problems in fiction theories, and proposes an epistemological statute for fiction.

Keywords : Imaginary; fiction; knowledge; imagination.
