The Architecture of the Imagination

Shaun Nichols

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of propositional imagination in philosophy. It identifies three prominent discussions of the propositional imagination in contemporary work: imagination and modality, imaginative resistance, and imagination and emotion. The precursors to a cognitive account of the propositional imagination, central facts about propositional imagination, and cognitive accounts of propositional imagination are then analysed. An overview of the chapters included in this volume is presented.

Keywords:   propositional imagination, philosophy, modality, imaginative resistance, emotion
