Writings on the Imagination.
Lewis, Richard, Ed.
Touchstone Center Journal, n2 1997
This second issue of a new journal presents six essays all on the theme of the imagination. New programming at the Touchstone Center has begun to focus on the importance of finding new forums for reflecting upon the place of the imagination in people's lives. The essays in this issue come from presenters in recent public lectures and workshops sponsored by the center: (1) "The Origin of Metaphor: The Animal Connection" (Paul Shepard); (2) "On the Evolution of the Imagination: The Origin of Metaphor" (Elizabeth Sewell); (3) "Creative Imagination" (Roger Lipsey); (4) "Empty Cups and Secret Lanterns: The Rewards of Idleness" (Ellen Dissanayake); (5) "On the Mythic and Poetic Imagination in Learning" (Kieran Egan); and (6) "Learning and the Imagination" (Howard Gardner).
