Yes, I should have; that is to say, that is what the text reads. It isn't clear
to me why 'also' is 'wrong in any case' though. 'One can imagine, as well...'--?
'But one can imagine, too...'--? The sense is that we have one example, and we
can imagine another, similar to it.

'Man kann sich aber auch denken,...' = ?

Thanks to Richard for his comments.
