Imagination and the Historical Legendary Awareness in the thoughts of Mohammad Arkoon

Mohammad Khalid Shiyab


This paper started with the definition of imagination and the role it plays in the crystallization of reason and history evolution. Then, it moves to explain the relationship between reason and legend and how even history can not escape the impact of both. It is quite difficult to separate reality from legend, as legends have been built in a way to express certain reality which led to a negative expression among the fundamentalist communities of the divine books (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) in light of the evolving cultural, psychological and linguistic mutual trends.
