ImaginingA Phenomenological StudySecond EditionEdward S. CaseyA classic firsthand account of the lived character of imaginative experience.This scrupulous, lucid study is destined to become a touchstone for all future writings on imagination." -Library JournalCasey's work is doubly valuable-for its major substantive contribution to our understanding of a significant mental activity, as well as for its exemplary presentation of the method of phenomenological analysis." -Contemporary Psychology... an important addition to phenomenological philosophy and to the humanities generally." -Choice... deliberately and consistently phenomenological, oriented throughout to the basically intentional character of experience and disciplined by the requirement of proceeding by way of concrete description.... [Imagining] is an exceptionally well-written work." -International Philosophical QuarterlyDrawing on his own experiences of imagining, Edward S. Casey describes the essential forms that imagination assumes in everyday life. In a detailed analysis of the fundamental features of all imaginative experience, Casey shows imagining to be eidetically distinct from perceiving and defines it as a radically autonomous act, involving a characteristic freedom of mind. A new preface places Imagining within the context of current issues in philosophy and psychology.[use one Casey bio for both Imagining and Remembering]Edward S.
