Details

Though imagination is often associated with flights of fancy and escapist aspirations, philosophers and other academics have also long recognized its practical and instructive uses. To give just a few examples, imagination has been thought to provide us with insight into the minds of others, to enhance moral understanding, and more generally to enable us to learn about the world in which we live. This conference focuses on one very specific practical use of imagination: whether and how it can help us to bring about social change.
