В одном из главных своих произведений американский философ, лидер направления критического реализма Джордж Сантаяна (1863 – 1952) обосновывает истинную роль творческого воображения в человеческой культуре. Религия, философия, искусство – все они, с его точки зрения, отражают не объективную реальность, а лишь наши собственные настроения, внутренние установки, структуры сознания, которые оказываются у Сантаяны единственной аподиктически необходимой реальностью. Но и наука не является исключением. Ее источник – то же самое творческое воображение, что и в искусстве или религии.

Philosophy The philosophy of Santayana had According to Santayana, the main task of philosophy should not be to explain the world, but to develop a "moral position" in relation to it. It is that the most perfect attitude of a person to the world is an aesthetic attitude and the level of development of society is determined not by the production of material goods, but by the amount of energy spent on "decorating life and the culture of imagination." The philosopher was convinced that "in science there is an all-pervading, inevitable and changeable element of poetry ... Science is the mental accompaniment of art." In A Life of Mind, he examined science, art, society and religion in terms of the "moral benefits" achieved by humanity in its quest to establish equilibrium with the environment. Santayana believed that "nature itself entails its ideal and that the progressive organization of irrational impulses creates rational thought." In the field of political philosophy, Santayana was a supporter of the idea of ​​"elite" as opposed to the idea of ​​democracy Quotes by George Santayana "Those who do not remember their history are doomed to repeat it" (the first volume of "The Life of Mind") let his eyes survey the whole world "" The family is one of the masterpieces of nature "" The truth, like a jewel, does not need to be embellished, but it must be positioned so that it can be seen in favorable light.
