The dependency of phantasia on the perceptual capacity shows it not to be a capacity in its own right. The perceptual capacity works as an efficient, formal, and final cause of phantasia. As an efficient cause insofar as it active perception brings about the kinêsis of phantasia, as a formal cause in that perception provides the contents of phantasia, and as a final cause in that phantasia helps make perceptual capacity useful in locomotion and thought for the relevant living beings as their beneficiaries.

Keywords:   imagination, locomotion, desire, future, beneficiary
