Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The aim of the workshop is to bring together views on the imagination and mental imagery, derived from consideration of the arts, and explore them in the context of examples in science. This is part of a more general project of exploring the inter-relationships not just between art and science but between the philosophy of art and the philosophy of science.
