Speaking Topic: C.S. Lewis and the Nuanced Imagination
The four nuances of the imagination are as follows: first, the satisfied imagination which enables us to find pleasure in the mundane and re-enchantment of the familiar. Second, the absorbing imagination enables us to blend multiple viewpoints to widen our own imaginative understanding of reality. Next is the controlled imagination which is highly manipulative: it projects the self to gain ascendency over the world and others. Lastly, there is the generous imagination which attempts to embellish something beyond desert, weakening the self and narrowing the soul.
