Two Workshops on Imagination at Padua University

Two Workshops on Imagination

10th,11th,12th December 2013
University of Padua, Sala Stefanini


What is imagination? How does it work? How does it relate to perception and to knowledge? What is it to imagine?
Philosophical thought on imagination has in Kant a formidable contributor and has taken a variety of directions in contemporary philosophy.
The two workshops present outstanding research on both Kant’s understanding of imagination and recent developments in epistemology, phenomenology and aesthetics.
