This chapter analyses the role of the discussion of hallucination in the development and direction of such theory represented by Jean-Paul Sartre's The Psychology of Imagination and Maurice Merleau-Ponty's Phenomenology of Perception. It looks at how their accounts of hallucination prove crucial to overcoming the rationalist/empiricist hiatus that the phenomenological approach aims to accomplish. The chapter also discusses the importance of an account of hallucination in Sartre's general theory of consciousness and his own philosophical commitment to the basic premises of Husserlian phenomenology.

Keywords:   hallucination, Jean-Paul Sartre, Psychology of Imagination, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Phenomenology of Perception, theory of consciousness, Husserlian phenomenology
