"For Husserl, the concept of imagination refers to phantasy as an original form of intentionality that grasps absent objects as if they were present. He suggests that aesthetic experience has to do with taking pleasure in appearances for their own sakes. How does imagination then relate to aesthetic experience? A phantasy itself may be utterly banal. What gives a phantasy aesthetic value? Husserl’s analyses of perception, judgment, and eidetic awareness imply the notion of presence. I hold that aesthetic experience lies not merely in taking pleasure in appearance, and not essentially in imagining objects as if they were present, but rather in the imagining of presence itself. The aim of this paper is to define this distinction by arguing that presence is the non-eidetic upon which all eidos relies, the non-objective within which all intentionality lives, and the original foundation of all experience of being and value."
