Its significance is, therefore, all-too-often either inflated or underrated. The articles collected in this volume trace the development of productive imagination through the history of philosophy, identify the various meanings ascribed to it by different philosophical frameworks, and raise the question anew concerning it philosophical significance. Special attention is given to the historical background that underlies the emergence of productive imagination in modernity; to Kant's concept of productive imagination; and to the further development of the concept in German Idealism, Whilhelm Dilthey, Edmund Husserl, Ernst Cassirer, Martin Heidegger, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Paul Ricoeur. In Productive Imagination, a group of leading scholars present a systematic and comprehensive reference tool for anyone working in the fields of scoial imaginaries--back cover."@en ;
