DISCUSSION: You should start back at line 34. The author is talking about imagining the lives of people apart from ourselves. We need to imagine how it feels to be someone else with different beliefs.
It’s even useful to read down as far as line 46. Don’t just stick to the line mentioned in the question.
- It’s more than this. We need to be able to put ourselves into another’s shoes.
- No! We don’t need to identify with one side over another. The important thing is to imagine how different people feel about a situation.
- This has nothing to do with imagining someone else’s perspective. And the author doesn’t mention solving problems.
- CORRECT. If you’re reading a book, you’re not directly involved in the situation. To keep interested, you must use your moral imagination.
- You can imagine something without acting upon it.
