Conference 2018

Imagination, Simulation, and the Self

Tufts University, 5-6th of July

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