Trafficking In Human Possibilities

(p.1) Chapter 1 Introduction
Narrative Imagination and Everyday Life

Molly Andrews

Oxford University Press

The book opens with a discussion of why imagination is so central to narrative and why narrative is such a vital component of imagination. What is the role of imagination in helping us to ‘see difference’, not only between ourselves and others, but between ourselves and who we might be or might have been? The chapter explores the situated nature of ‘imagination’ and its critical role in everyday life.

Keywords:   situated imagination, situated knowledge, temporality, the real, the not-real, the not-yet-real, confronting otherness, dialogic approach
