The Romantics made major claims for imagination: that it was both an artistic and cognitive faculty. Thus the seminar will begin by considering both the structure of the Romantic literary imagination and the romantic theory of knowledge in works by Wordsworth, Blake, Coleridge, Kant, and Fichte. Attention will then shift to more general questions: Does artistic imagination tell us anything about reality? Can imagination become a rigorous mode of cognition? What is its relationship to rationality? Does some form of imagination have a place in science and ethics? The nature of metaphorical thinking will be considered, as will the function of imagination in scientific revolutions, the psychology of perception, and visual art.
