Poetry, Science, and the Imagination

March 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Image is pleased to present our inaugural L’Engle Seminar

Poetry, Science, and the Imagination 

a five-part seminar with Brian Volck and special guests

Wednesdays in March at 1pm ET

Poetry and the sciences are connected in deep and surprising ways. Both the poet and the scientist engage reality through the imagination. And in this five-part online seminar, you are invited to explore imagination as a way of knowing within the two disciplines. Each hour-long session will have a distinct focus and feature the insight of a wide array of poets, scientists, philosophers, and theologians.

The series is open to everyone who reads poetry, took a science class in school, or has an imagination!

March 17: The One Life Within Us

Imagination is key to scientific and poetic discovery. Contemporary neuroscience is now discovering what Coleridge intuited in 1817: that imagination is an indispensable component of all perception. How does imagination function in both disciplines? What do these commonalities mean for our creative and spiritual lives?

Special guest: Malcolm Guite, poet, priest, and Coleridge scholar, talking about Coleridge’s theory of the primary and secondary imagination
