  3. Mavis Biss (2014). On W. P. Ker'sImagination and Judgment”. Ethics 125 (1):232-234,.score: 540.0
    InImagination and JudgmentW.P. Ker argues, contrary to theordinary teachingof the moralists of his day, that we have good reason to consider imagination (...)asthe highest form of practical wisdom or prudence” (475). Modes of imaginative thought that direct human passion towards morally valuable ends are best understood as a form of reason or an intellectual virtue, as opposed to a dangerous distraction from reality and threat to good judgment. Kers piece remains of interest partly because it anticipates some of the most important contributions to moral theory made by philosophers, most notably Iris Murdoch and Martha Nussbaum, who have developed conceptions ofmoral imaginationin more recent decades. More significantly, reflecting on Kers catalogue of the positive and direct roles played by imagination in moral reasoning reveals that there is further work to be done in clarifying the concept of imagination in relation to practical reason.
