Details

The conference aims to explore a broad set of issues concerning the connections between fiction, imagination, and epistemology.  What exactly can we learn from fiction and imagination? Can we only learn what could be the case or also what is the case? Can we also learn how to do certain things through fiction or imagination? What kind of justification does imagination provide, if any at all? And, what place have thought experiments here? Are they fictions? Do they involve imagination? What kind of knowledge do they offer, if any?
