Imagining and Knowing

The Shape of Fiction

Gregory Currie

  • An engaging defence of the idea that fictions are guides to the imagination
  • Emphasises the difficulties and dangers of too optimistic a picture of learning from fiction
  • Responds to a range of recent theories which have questioned the centrality of imagination
  • Brings together two distinct intellectual traditions: humanist thinking about literature and work in empirical psychology on learning
