9781137362612: Coleridge and the Nature of Imagination: Evolution, Engagement with the World, and Poetry

Examining a range of Coleridge's writings, this book uses recent scientific research to understand how we have evolved to make mental representations of the counterfactual, how such transformative essays in Imagination have enabled humans to survive, to prosper and to express themselves in the sciences, the arts and particularly in poetry.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 280 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.7in. x 0.9in.Long ago I A Richards remarked that if we are to understand the Imagination, we have to understand how the brain works. Scientists have begun to approach this deep and complex problem in ways that we can not ignore. Coleridges ideas on the subject belong to another age, but he had the knack of raising questions and performing thought experiments which are still relevant. This book explores the questions and discoveries raised both by Coleridge and by recent scientific research in order to offer fresh and original approaches to the reading of poetry and in particular the reading of Coleridges major poems, The Ancyent Marinere, Kubla Khan and Christabel. This book offers an interpretation of the role of Imagination in the development of the human consciousness and the vital role poetry plays in our engagement with the world. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137362612
