The Moral Imagination

John Paul Lederach (Contributor Webpage)

This chapter examines the connection of art to the pragmatics of political change in the world. It argues that art and finding our way back to our humanity are connected. Constructive social change, like art, comes in fits and starts. The greatest movements forward often germinated from something that collapsed, fell to the ground, and then sprouted something that moved beyond what was then known. Those seeds, like the artistic process itself, touched the moral imagination. To believe in healing is to believe in the creative act.
