Brian Fey, divides concepts into three categories; first, concepts which we use in thinking, second, concepts which we think about, and third, concept by which we think,. According to this categories, "social imaginary" would be in third category. it means that there is fixed cultural element within each nation which confronting new developments, it affects them. "Social imaginary" is the main concept of Debry’s theory of mediology. this review tries to show that this concept is an interdisciplinary concept of Althusser’s Marxism structural theory and Jung’s unconscious theory, by using the metatheory. This methodology would help us to know more deeply about a theory. The consequence is that "social imaginary" is a synthesis of political and psychological theory developed in France.
