Social Imagination

"Social Imagination creates spaces that are in process, alweays being remade. Where imagination and action have a relaationship. Action gives reality to that space."- conversation with Maxine Greene, April, 2013

What do we think about when we think of the term "social imagination"? How does Maxine Greene write about the importance of, development of this world view? There is a quotation by George Bernard Shaw, used by Robert Kennedy in 1968, when running for the presidency. Perhaps we could start there:

"Some see things as they are and ask why; others dream things that never were and ask why not."-JF Kennedy
