Summary
The Palgrave Encyclopedia of the Possible represents a comprehensive resource for researchers and practitioners interested in an emerging multidisciplinary area within psychology and the social sciences: the study of how we engage with and cultivate the possible within self, society and culture. Far from being opposed either to the actual or the real; the possible engages with concrete facts and experiences, with the result of transforming them. This encyclopedia examines the notion of the possible and the concepts and themes associated with it from standpoints within psychology, philosophy, sociology, neuroscience and logic; and multidisciplinary fields of research including anticipation studies, future studies, complexity theory and creativity research. Presenting multiple perspectives on the possible, the authors consider the distinct psychological processes related to imagination, the social interactions, social change and cultural resources that scaffold these, and applicable domains such as the arts, architecture, design, and business. This book offers a key resource to those interested in the possible, anticipation, the future and the virtual, and suggests routes for exploring, mobilizing and fostering the possible within a variety of theoretical, research and applied contexts.
