Abstract
This paper aims to reappraise the meaning and importance of imagination in science. For this, I first Examine historically the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century as a period during which imagination in science began to be underestimated. The underestimation emerged along with the rise of experimental science and culminated with Newton's triumph, This had an enormous impact upon the Enlightenment philosopher, who separated reason from imagination, as well as science from art and the humanities I then take an example of Newtonian science to highlight the important role of scientific imagination in Newton's scientific achievements, After this , I explore various important discoveries in the history of science which clearly show the positive role of scientific imagination. Rehabilitating scientific imagination not only illuminates the true nature of scientific creativity but

helps bridge the gap between the 'two cultures' that is between the sciences and humanities.
