Imagination

Imagination is the faculty or action of producing ideas, esp mental images of what is not present or has not been experienced (Collins). Ariety (1976: 37) defines imagination as "the capacity of the mind to produce or reproduce several symbolic functions while in a state of consciousness, of awareness, without any deliberate effort to organize these functions" and notes that "imagination excludes all that which cannot assume or has not yet assumed a form, verbal or nonverbal" (ibid., 38).
