This chapter argues that the moral imagination requires us to develop the art of living in multiple time and space spheres. Multi-dimensionality is present even in the moments of greatest crisis, when the urgency of the situation seems to hinge on quick short-term decisions. Thus, we need the imagination of the past that lies before us. This imagination involves the capacity to restory, to find the narrative that gives meaning to life and ongoing relationships.

Keywords:   peacebuilding, moral imagination, time, space, multi-dimensionality, restory
