Imagination and Learning: A Reply to Kieran Egan


by Maxine Greene — 1985

A reponse to Egan's article, Imagination and Learning. Though in agreement on the lack of an adequate account of educational development, the authors are not in total agreement on the nature of imagination, the meaning of the concrete, or the abstract categories or conceptual tools that (for Egan) account for children’s comprehension of fantasy stories.
