This article considers the form and content of the models of thought in scientific and literary creativity. When the “atomic” content of thought is conveyed with its literary content, a philosopheme or a philosophical concept can be understood as a model of thought. Consequently, the structural content of the ideal construction of a phenomenological thought does not obliterate its literary essence. Herein the literary content of phenomenological thought is considered as its second phenomenological feature. For example, if the phenomenon “death” gives one the chance to interpret life as common “destiny,” the human being is able to include the essences of the “death” and “destiny” in one thought and one model of thought. Re-modeling occurs as an act of reconstruction in philosophical thought. The esoteric essence is considered through comparison of the two models of thought. The concept of the “space of thought” developed by Salahaddin Khalilov gives us an opportunity to understand philosophical space as a phenomenological space. And the “passion of the Earth” expounded by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka relates this primary idea with cosmic harmony. Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka shows not only the logical perception of place but also the abilities of literary imagination. On this basis, there is generated an instinct of place or “nest” and the model of the “passion of the Earth” and the primary and divine homesickness turns toward an esoteric place.
