Imagination and Experience: An Integrative Framework
Fettes, Mark
Democracy & Education, v21 n1 Article 4 2013

The relationship between these different imaginative modes resembles shifts between different kinds of understanding in Kieran Egan's theory of imaginative development. From this theoretical collision, a new framework emerges that gives greater weight to the connections between experience and imagination, and that may help to guide new forms of democratic educational practice.
