Kearney on imagination and ethics

posted by drew


"Imagination is indispensable to ethics.... One could argue that the receptive power of imagination lies at the very root of our moral capacity to respect the otherness of the other person, to treat the other as an end rather than a means, to empathize."

--Richard Kearney (1998)

what people are saying about drew

"I've had the life-changing pleasure of hearing Drew Dellinger perform his work in person. Since I first heard him recite 'hieroglyphic stairway' in person in 2008, it has become the context which frames everything that I do. And that was four years ago! Love Letter to the Milky Way will certainly rock your world. And just wait until he unleashes his dissertation work onto the masses!!!"
