Imagination, Understanding, and the Virtue of Liberality Summary


Imagination, Understanding, and the Virtue of Liberality by David L. Norton

Current debates over multiculturalism often pit those who believe that every perspective should be represented against those who hold fast to the notion of a universal "common ground." In this timely and original work, David L. Norton persuasively argues for the power of a "transcendental imagination," that is, an imagination that can go beyond itself to gain another's perspective without necessarily assimilating that perspective. Imagination, Understanding, and the Virtue of Liberality will be an important work for all intellectuals and very useful in courses that address multiculturalism.
