This book deals with projections of subconscious memories, and discusses the inner reality of the self as an imaginary state, situated under historical and technological influences. However, the book exemplifies phantasms so well within wide range of 'scientific' endeavours and authentic artistic activities (see pages 115-118) that I am left convinced that the spirit is not illusory but does exist or at least hold a valid reality. By showing so well the existence of the illusory state of the spirit, I am left feeling that it is not illusionary at all. This is fascinating. A remarkable achievement and intriguing work, by author Marina Warner.
