Lecture 6:
Adam Blatner

This is the sixth and last in a series on Imagination Development given to the Senior University Georgetown in the Fall of 2014.

Okay, so what? So it turns out that if you exercise imagination you can make it work for you. Really that is what accounts for almost all of the creativity in technology and the arts that we've enjoyed in the last many centuries. Some imaginative constructions have gone into cults and foolish schemes, admittedly, and much imagination has gone into feeling so righteous that it has justified killing and doing major damage to perceived enemies and many who were innocently associated with them.

I'm suggesting that imagination can be redeemed, molded, worked with. The first idea to integrate is that you can take control over what has formerly been either suppressed by grown-ups and society, or used to change your shopping and work hapits through advertising and propaganda.
