In psychology of religion, the importance of the human capacity for imagination is stressed by authors like P.W. Pruyser (1992, originally 1976) and B. Beit-Hallahmi (1989). Yet, a conceptual analysis of imagination, as a necessary foundation for empirical research, is missing. In this article, it is tried to clarify the concept of imagination with the help of the thought of J. Dewey – especially his psychology of art – for the benefit of research on the relationship between aesthetic and religious experiences.
