Description

Reviews

“"This scrupulous, lucid study is destined to become a touchstone for all future writings on imagination." —Library Journal " . . . deliberately and consistently phenomenological, oriented throughout to the basically intentional character of experience and disciplined by the requirement of proceeding by way of concrete description. . . . [Imagining] is an exceptionally well-written work." —International Philosophical Quarterly Drawing on his own experiences of imagining, Edward S. Casey describes the essential forms that imagination assumes in everyday life. A new preface to this classic firsthand account of the lived character of imaginative experience places Imagining within the context of current issues in philosophy and psychology.”
