Definición de Vorstellung en inglés:

sustantivo (plural Vorstellungen /-ˌʃtɛlʊŋ(ə)n/)

Philosophy
A mental image or idea produced by prior perception of an object, as in memory or imagination, rather than by actual perception.
Example sentences
  • A more old-fashioned translation of the German Vorstellung gives us the world as idea - but to retain this could be misleading because of Schopenhauer's use of Idee for a Platonic Idea elsewhere in the system.
  • Yet the individual making the judgment either plays a part in the sublime spectacle, or is a spectator; either one merely sees, or one sees oneself, by presenting oneself confronting the danger in the objectivity of the Vorstellung.
