Abstract

What role does the imagination play in scientifi c progress? After examining several studies in cognitive science, I argue that one thing the imagination does is help to increase scientifi c understanding, which is itself indispensable for scientifi c progress. Then, I sketch a transcendental justification of the role of imagination in this process.
