Humanist Discussion Group


«Communities are to be distinguished... by the style in which they are imagined.» «Collective imagining... takes shape through discursive engagement among interlocutors.... Discourse functions in this context not as a vehicle for transmitting information and beliefs but as a constitutive force.» Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities (rev. edn., 1991): 4; Robert Asen, "Imagining in the Public Sphere", Philosophy and Rhetoric 35.4 (2002): 349.
