Abstract

(The following paper is the report of a study in which an observational and a tachistoscopic method have been developed for the measurement of imagination in the preschool child. Since the research is still in progress the results are incomplete and the conclusions tentative.) For the purpose of this investigation we have chosen to define imagination as the synthetic process by which ideas are combined to form new products. It is by means of imagination that new thought is brought into existence. This new thought need not be new to the race, but it is new to the individual. It is the product of an inter-relationship of old elements of experience, a process of natural synthesis.
