"You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus."

Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court

"It remains true that there is, after all, nothing but imagination that can ever supply [one] an inkling of the truth. He can stare stupidly at phenomena; but in the absence of imagination they will not connect themselves together in any rational way."

Charles Sanders Peirce, Collected Papers

"Art as an anti-environment becomes more than ever a means of training perception and judgment. Art offered as a consumer commodity rather than as a means of training perception is as ludicrous and snobbish as always. Media study at once opens the doors of perception."

Marshall McLuhan, Understanding Media

"By aesthetic education [I mean] anything that trains the imagination for epistemological performance: training the imagination for the construction of things to know. When you know something, you construct it in a certain way. [It is] training of the imagination for alternative epistemological performances."

Gayatri Spivak, An Aesthetic Education in the Era of Globalization
