This is a history of two intertwining families over four generations who exhibited moral imagination. It is the storyh of one religious movement's engagement with "industrial revolution."

G'day from the Land Down Under! To be exact: from a town called Stanthorpe in Australia and a guy who was born here in 1956. I'm really curious about the universe and have tried to understand it by using 'scientific imagination.' Hope you like the results. The German physicist Albert Einstein (1879-1955) said, 'Imagination is more important than knowledge'Ś' In this quote, Einstein isn't speaking of fantasy, but of applying scientific knowledge in an imaginative way.

00 Nineteenth-century British culture frequently represented the eye as the preeminent organ of truth. These essays explore the relationship between the verbal and the visual in the Victorian imagination. They range broadly over topics that include the relationship of optical devices to the visual imagination, the role of photography in changing the conception of evidence and truth, the changing partnership between illustrator and novelist, and the ways in which literary texts represent the visual.

Ren Descartes is commonly portrayed as a strict rationalist, a philosopher who theorized a radical, unresolvable split between mind and body. In this long-overdue examination of the role of imagination in Descartes's thought, Dennis Sepper reveals a Descartes quite different from the usual dualistic portrayals and offers a critical reconception of the genesis and nature of the philosopher's thought.In a vigorous analysis of the less-known early works, Sepper finds that initially Descartes assigned the imagination a central role in the mind's activity. Although Descartes eventually lost confide

European cinema between World Wars I and II was renowned for its remarkable attention to detail and visual effects in set design. Visionary designers such as Vincent Korda and Alfred Junge extended their influence across national film industries in Paris, London, and Berlin, transforming the studio system into one of permeable artistic communities. For the first time, Film Architecture and the Transnational Imagination provides a comparative study of European film set design in the late 1920s and 1930s.  Based on a wealth of drawings, film stills, and archival documents from the period, this
