9781330597798: Education Through the Imagination (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Education Through the Imagination

The importance of the role played by Imagination in the higher branches of mental activity has been long admitted by the learned. Sir Benjamin Brodie, speaking at the British Association in 1859, alluded to the Imagination as "that wonderful faculty - the source of poetic genius - the instrument of discovery in Science without which Newton would never have invented fluxions, nor Davy decomposed the earths and alkalies, nor would Columbus have found another continent."

Popular opinion does not incline to regard imagination as a very important faculty for all. The imaginative person is usually regarded as a visionary. Poets, painters, romancers, children - these are supposed to represent the imaginatives. People enjoy their works more or less and indulge them in their fancies as children. But they are apt to regard imagination as a kind of weakness in practical men.

And yet nothing justifies us in prescribing imagination to a few occupations and persons. It is the creative power of the mind which gives life to all work. The discoveries of science, and the creations of art, represent certain forms of its activity - forms which attract and compel attention. But it is as reasonable to say that there is light only on the summits of hills as to say that there is creative power only in the minds of artists and scientists.
