Examines the work of philosopher Cornelius Castoriadis, specifically his radical critique of all heteronomy, whether religious or secularist. Discusses certain biological notions of autopoiesis in order to shed light on human animal’s capacity to create its own forms of the worldly and the otherworldly, of imagination and existence.

Keywords:   Heteronomy, Autonomy, Autopoiesis, Cornelius Castoriadis
