Moral Imagination Download Õ 8 review Moral Imagination Spanning many historical and literary contexts Moral Imagination brings together a dozen recent essays by one of America's premier cultural critics David Bromwich explores the importance of imagination and sympathy to suggest how these faculties may illuminate the motives of human action and the reality of justice These wide ranging essays address thinkers and topics from Gandhi and Martin Luther King on nonviolent resistance to the dangers of identity politic.

Moral Imagination Download Õ 8 review Moral Imagination Principled work of persuasion against slavery in the 1850s the erosion of privacy in America under the influence of social media and the use of euphemism to shade and anesthetize reactions to the global war on terror Throughout Bromwich considers the relationship between language and power and the insights language may offer into the corruptions of power Moral Imagination captures the singular voice of one of the most forceful thinkers working in America today. David Bromwich s collection of essays have stood the test of time for the most part and those that seem dated are interesting in their reflection of what we were thinking at a certain point in time I particularly appreciated his essays on Lincoln and his insights into Edmund Burke and Richard Price I loved the idea of Lincoln and Whitman as representative Americans but Lincoln then clearly rises above the moral average and Whitman s iconoclastic nature makes him a difficult fit So Bromwich did not prove his point but I think it was the wrong point from the start If we take Lincoln and Whitman instead as models of the moral imagination of his title they stand tall Even Burke might agree
