Moral imagination: an introduction to the special issue

L. Bøttcher, M. Adams

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialOtherpeer-review


In this special issue, a group of international scholars explore how the concept of moral imagination anchored in the cultural-historical tradition can be of use to further address central research questions at the heart of learning and development. Moving beyond the original study that proposed the moral imagination as a way to understand the reengagement of students with a history of school failure, through mediating quality relationships between teachers and students (Vadeboncoeur & Vellos, 2016), the articles in this issue investigate the potential of the concept in a variety of settings within educational and developmental studies. Before presenting an outline of the articles, a brief introduction to the concept of the moral imagination is provided.
