To show that the consensus view lacks foundation I shall examine its most
developed account of imagination: that of Currie (and Currie and Ravenscroft).
As this view is amenable to several different interpretations this will need to be
done at some length. I shall then consider the views of Meskin and Weinberg.
Currie presents his views in a number of places. I shall consider two: his 1995
book, Image and Mind, and his 2002 book (written with Ian Ravenscroft),
Recreative Minds.

This gravity has been defined, by a French wit, as a mysterious carriage of the
body, to cover the defects of the mind. Locke, according to his biographer, always
praised Rochefoucault's maxim, "that gravity was but the mask which stupidity
wore to cover its defects." — Dr. Young says, And be this truth, eternal, ne'er
forgot, Solemnity's a cover for the sot. Some people make a mystery of every
thing, (they must bid you good day in a whisper,) looking exceeding wise, even
about trifles.

I am describing no monstrosity, no straw man, but an ideal of beauty that inspired
many of the greatest creative minds of our century. And it is only in the nature of
things that what dominated advanced recreative minds half a century ago should
be dominating advanced recreative minds today. The paradox and the problem
— or is it just my problem? — is that this way of thinking about art and
performance has no demonstrable relevance to the ways people thought about
art and ...
