Imaginary-nothing. The concept of principle in Stanislas Breton’s Être, Monde, Imaginaire: Philosophical study of the concept of the principle was conducted by Stanislas Breton in his two books: Du principe and Être, Monde Imaginaire, the first of which was dominated by analytical and abstract style, while the second was speculative and imaginary. This article undertakes the task of reconstructing the idea of the principle contained in the latter position. In the first part of the article the author presents two currents of thought concerning the principle: ontological, which is based on the category of logos, and ontomythological, for which the leading category is mythos. After discussing the differences between these two fields of thought and its corresponding fields of being, the author undertakes an attempt of describing the absolute source of reality - imaginary-nothing. The attempt is accompanied by the presentation of the way on which the ineffable principle produces the Word whom original expression is prattle. The article concludes with the analysis of the fable as the original form of expression of the imaginary-nothing, from whom arise two trunks of rationality mentioned above: ontological and ontomythological.
