Perspectival Imagination

ENS - Institut Nicod  -  29, rue d'Ulm  -  75005 Paris
Many philosophers have pointed out that at least one salient type of imagining is perspectival (i.e., imagination somehow involves a self or “point of view”). The correct analysis of the notion of perspectival imagining is crucial to an understanding of central issues in theory of morality, personal identity, mindreading, aesthetics and philosophy of language. Moreover, it can shed light on psychological phenomena outside the sphere of imagination, such as perception and memory. Still, the notion of perspectivalness is largely unclear. The aim of this workshop is to explore this issue, trying to specify the different senses in which imagination can be perspectival, and the peculiarities of perspectival imagining with respect to other mental states.
