The Function Of The Imaginative Faculty

“Imagination is, in a word, the faculty by which we organize the content of our experience into some form and thus apprehend it as significant. Put another way, it is what makes us refuse to accept experience as mere random clutter and makes us try without ceasing to shape that experience so that we can manage it.”

Thomas Howard, An Antique Drum

As quoted by Ken Myers in this conversation.
