Summary/Abstract: The article is organized as follows: (1) „experience“, „faculty of imagination“ and „concept“ which are essential part from Kantian transcendental analytics are separated and considered; (2) the goal is for these concepts to be grasped not as founding the principles of knowledge of understanding but through the question of what is heterogeneous in their nature; (3) in this relation, non-reason elements in the content of these concepts acquire a key importance; (4) it is demonstrated how, modified to some extent, these concepts are used in the context of early analytic philosophy; (5) moreover, „logical experience“, „logical imagination“ and „indefinable“ will come out as related in a philosophical-logical constellation that is visible in Russell’s epistemological Manuscript of 1913 and Our knowledge of the External World; (6) an attempt is made of interpretation (analysis) of the concept of „experience”, defined as „acquaintance with the logical form“, i.e. as „mental synthesis“ which is its implicit primary ingredient.
