The translation table is confusing. Since the definitions for "image-making power of the mind" contain those for "representative power"—though not vice versa—, I deleted the latter. The previous situation was unwieldy—revert if you have a better idea! Dmyersturnbull 04:37, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

imagination

This page is a mess... How about removing the "representative power"? (defined in Webster's as "The representative power; the power to reconstruct or recombine the materials furnished by direct apprehension; the complex faculty usually termed the plastic or creative power; the fancy.") It is used only in the synonym and translation sections and the translations for it are identical to the "image-making" section. That leaves image-making and resourcefulness.
