Spinoza

‘Before becoming active, we must select and link together passions that increase our power of action. But such passions are related to images of objects that agree in nature with us […] if we consider their origin, common notions find in imagination the very condition of their formation […] thus these ideas may themselves in some respects be likened to images.’

Spinoza and Expressionism pp.294
