“Varieties of World Making: Personal & Public Functions of the Imagination”
This group presentation seeks to motivate a reevaluation of certain key functions
of the imagination. In its simple and most general form, the imagination shall be
considered as that aspect of mind which presents what is absent, albeit with
varying degrees of success.
When successful, imagining can be fundamental to both modal knowledge and
to understanding others. In its moment of failure, we can become bored and
uninterested in our shared future, especially our political future.
