Exploring the Social Imagination

The Locus of Society

The Locus of society exists in the human mind, it is a collection of personal ideas among us, it is the social imagination. We imagine we are and who we are because of our imagining of others and that they are imagining us; and thus, we are a composite, a social imagination. We could never know ourselves without this ability to be a collection of personal ideas among us, we could not function without this ability, this fundamental aspect of social imagination. There never was or will be a single isolated entity that is not such a composite.
