Imagination is not all about beards and trouble, confirms researcher at Aarhus University, Andreas Lieberoth. Without some imagination, we couldn't make dinner, and we probably never would have thought of traveling out and populating the globe. Imagination is both a driving force in our evolution and a product of it.
Fantasy is hard to locate in our heads. Imagination only occurs when all the brain's systems together create a unique mental laboratory where we can think new things, look ahead, daydream or simply invent.
Imagination is part of the series, Thinking breaks. In just 60 pages, researchers from Aarhus University convey their knowledge about exactly what they know most about. The books can make you wiser about everything from faith, hope and love to ants, monsters and villains.
