...IMAGINATION Imagination refers to a where a person forms mental images of things orevents that cannot be perceived physically. It involves “refusing to let” go until one gets the very depth of a matter. Over the years, imagination has been regarded as a tool capable of transforming an obscurity into a reality. As a matter of fact, some most of inventions and innovations trace their roots to this concept. Albert Einstein is a renowned scientists and one of the greatest thinkers ever to exist. In one of his famous quotes, he asserts that, “Logic will get you from A to Z; Imagination will take you everywhere (Heather 43).” Similarly, Jesuit universities insist that all its... of Affiliation THE POWER OF...

...Imagination and Irving Singer’s Feeling and Imagination present two very compelling views of the nature of imagination. They both do so with the aid of monumental support from the literature throughout the entire history of philosophy, moving from Plato to Kant, Schelling, and the other German Idealists. Although both authors introduce a vast scope of input from such a history, the focus here will be on Kant particularly, and his notions of the aesthetic. Both discuss Kant at length, including his thoughts on how the imagination is coupled with the production of creative art. However, the two philosophers’ approaches to Kant differ in several fundamentally... Kant and the Aesthetic Mary Warnock’s...

...Imagination Sociological imagination is the concept that enables people to think themselves away from the common routines of life and have a look at them in a new way. In order to get a sociological imagination, one must distance himself/herself and pull away from a situation that is in hand. One must think from another point of view. Willingness to observe the social world at appoint of others stimulates the sociological imagination. This involves abandoning the thoughts of oneself and the problems, then focus on the social circumstances that bring about the social problems (Ho).

...Imagination      Abstract This paper looks at sociological imagination, unemployment and its impact, and the association between personal occurrences and the social effect of unemployment. A number of studies indicate that unemployment affects an individual personally and the whole community. In addition, sociological imagination tries to explain social results from the point of view of social actions, actors, and social context (Mills, 1959). This helps to explain how unemployment may lead to several results, for example, crime, deviance, poverty, among other vices. Also, this paper illustrates how sociological imagination helps to perceive things or circumstances socially, how...  Sociological...

The main theme of Mill’s theoretical framework is this that individuals should imagine and envision the social transformation, taking place in their environment, in the pretext of their socio-political history, which would be highly beneficial for them in respect of understanding the developments being made around them in future years to come. Social imagination, according to Mills, is the capacity to shift from one perspective to another; the capacity to range from the most impersonal and remote transformations... Sociological...

Yet in doing so they often neglected the individual, to the extent that individual only functions as an object of socialization, or a repeater of socializing processes. Yet this imagining of the individual cannot stand because the society relies on the individual to shape it – “Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both” (Mills 1959). The problem, however, is that people do not often imagine the role they play in shaping... Prof’s The Individual and Society: Social...

Underlying this feeling of being trapped are the seemingly uncontrollable and continuous changes to society.
