Books:

Heard on: Spark


The Life of Imagination explores how imagination shapes the everyday human experience. Using philosophy, cognitive science and literary theory, this book demonstrates how imagination works at the core of transformative thinking to be an essential part of how we change our engagement with the world and ourselves.

Jennifer Gosetti-Ferencei is a professor of German and philosophy at John Hopkins University. Her previous books include Heidegger, Hölderlin, and the Subject of Poetic Language, The Ecstatic Quotidian and a poetry collection, After the Palace Burns.

LISTEN | Nora Young discusses the power of imagination in building alternate futures: How to set our imagination free to build the technological futures we want. Imagination is often dismissed as childish, or a frill. But it also lets us picture alternative futures, and technologies that haven't been invented yet. So how do we harness our imagination? And in an age where Big Tech promises to solve our problems for us, how do we use our imaginations to build the futures we want?
