In line with traditional philosophical thinking, recent empirical results from psychology and neuroscience have suggested that imagination and memory are intimately related in a variety of ways. This has reinforced the idea that the intersection of the philosophy of imagination and the philosophy of memory is a potentially fruitful area for research. What is the relationship between imagination and memory ? Are they mental states of the same kind ? Do they allow us to know the world in the same way ? This workshop will discuss various questions of mutual interest to philosophers of imagination and philosophers of memory, with the goal of promoting future philosophical research at the intersection of these two domains.
