This is subdivided into Creative Imagination, Imitative Imagination 1. Creative Imagination is when something new is created. There is originality in the creation. It is the very superior kind of imagination. E.g. scientist, artists, novelists, poets, playwrights. Creative Imagination is again subdivided to a) Aesthetic imagination - when it is directed to the production and appreciation of beauty. No outside control is accepted. The artist has his own code of laws of working. E.g. an artist or a dancer or a musician. b) Pragmatic imagination - when the imagination fulfills a practical aspect. E.g. architects designing a building. External control is present. c) Fantastic type of imagination - many people build castles in the air, in this case, the imagination has no control, there are no conditions applying here. 2.
