Conference 2018

Imagination, Simulation, and the Self

Tufts University, 5-6th of July

Our second conference investigates imagination and other counterfactual attitudes from perspectives in philosophy of mind, linguistics, and cognitive science. The central focus will be on how the self is represented in imagination, simulation, and dreaming, as well as the role that such representations play in empathy and understanding.
