This chapter engages in a philosophical exploration of the creative imagination in human beings, seeking to discern its basic structure and its significance for the understanding of what it means to be human. Humans enjoy a far wider scope of creative imagination partly because of human intelligence to abstract thought, and partly from the freedom in which human imagination participates because it is associated with the free will of the human spirit.

Keywords: creative imagination; soul-body unity; human; human intelligence; freedom; free will; human spirit
