"The visionary starts with a clean sheet of paper, and reimagines the world." — Malcolm Gladwell
"It's a very salutary thing to realize that the rather dull universe in which most of us spend most of our time is not the only universe there is." — Aldous Huxley
Philosophers, poets, and artists in every era have revisioned and reimagined the world in ways that have inspired historical transformations. Visionary texts – whether they reach proleptically into an imagined future, analeptically reconsider the past, or urgently re-envision the present – have offered us alternative possibilities of understanding who and where we are.
