Thinking Through the Imagination

John Kaag

Fordham University Press

This concluding chapter surveys the ground covered in the book, noting how it tries to understand the imagination through three intellectual periods: 18th century idealism, 19th century pragmatism, and 20th century cognitive neuroscience. Additionally, the chapter explores the relationship between Dewey and Peirce and concludes with a reflection on Thoreau's understanding of the imagination as serving as a bridge between thoughtful human action and the natural world.

Keywords:   Abduction, Thoreau, Dewey, Royce, James, Pragmatism, Peirce, fallibility
