Abstract

A better understanding of the imagination ⋯ lies in loosening the grip of a concept of imagination that is exclusively concerned with the representation of various states of affairs, that restricts interest in it to the imagining of various fictional truths, and thus suggests an unreal discontinuity between what and how we imagine and our real life engagements in everyday life.
