  • Title:
    Imagination.
  • Author: Ladd, George Trumbull
  • Description: As compared with memory, that development of the life of representation which is called "Imagination" stands partly on a higher, and partly on a lower, intellectual level. Imagination is not a re-knowing of what was actual, as recognitive memory professedly is; it, therefore, stands in no such immediate relation to the acquisition of knowledge. And yet the extension of knowledge into its higher ranges, the passage from the seen to the unseen, from the present in time and space to the distant and the future, makes strenuous demands upon the image-making faculty. It is not inventors, artists, and poets alone, but also men of "pure" science and of philosophy, who require a high development of imagination.
