Social Imaginaries

Stretching the limits of productive imagination

studies in kantianism, phenomenology and hermeneutics

Edited by

Saulius Geniusas

How has the concept of productive imagination been developed in post-Kantian philosophy? This important and innovative volume explores this question, with particular focus on hermeneutics, phenomenology and neo-Kantianism. The essays in this collection demonstrate that imagination is productive not only because it fabricates non-existent objects, but also because it shapes human experience and co-determines the meaning of the experienced world. The authors show how imagination forms experience at the kinaesthetic, pre-linguistic, poetic, historical, artistic, social and political levels. The volume offers botha thematic and a historical overview of productive imagination understood as Kant originally wanted us to understand it.
