Drawing on literature from developmental psychology, this chapter identifies and discusses some of the central features that characterize both early childhood and adult pretense. It offers a view that both draws on and differs from many standard psychological and philosophical conceptions of imagination, pretense, and make‐belief, including those of Paul Harris, Shaun Nichols and Stephen Stich, and Kendall Walton.

Keywords:   pretense, make‐belief, imagination, belief, developmental psychology, Paul Harris, Shaun Nichols and Stephen Stich, Kendall Walton
