ImaginingA Phenomenological StudySecond EditionEdward S. Casey
A classic firsthand account of the lived character of imaginative experience.
"This scrupulous, lucid study is destined to become a touchstone for all future writings on imagination." -- Library Journal
"Casey's work is doubly valuable -- for its major substantive contribution to our understanding of a significant mental activity, as well as for its exemplary presentation of the method of phenomenological analysis." -- Contemporary Psychology
..". an important addition to phenomenological philosophy and to the humanities generally." -- Choice
..". 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. In a detailed analysis of the fundamental features of all imaginative experience, Casey shows imagining to be eidetically distinct from perceiving and defines it as a radically autonomous act, involving a characteristic freedom of mind. A new preface places Imagining within the context of current issues in philosophy and psychology.
