Sumario:Notions of geographical imagination and imagination are widely used in Geography today. The purpose of this paper is to identify the assumptions of these notions within some Anglo-Saxon geographers; specifically we are interested in studying the role of these ideas in their own discipline project and how these ideas were articulated in their analysis of past geographies. Firstly this paper discusses the concepts of imagination and geographical imagination used during the 1960s and 1970s with the aim of overcoming little Geography awareness with social and cultural aspects. Secondly we present perspectives around these ideas developed in the 1990s by postcolonial geographies and visual culture studies. Finally, we recognize their impact on some lines of research that are being developed in South America in the last decades
