Title: The importance of being neutral : more on the phenomenology and metaphysics of imagination ; a reply to Anne-Sophie Brüggen
Online publication date: 29-Nov-2016
Language: english
Abstract: In this reply to Anne-Sophie Brüggen's comments to our target paper, we focus on three main issues. First, we explain that although our account of imaginative re-creation is in many respects metaphysically neutral, it allows for a taxonomy of imaginings that goes beyond mere phenomenological observations and pre-theoretical intuitions. Second, we defend our interpretation of the distinction between objective and subjective imagination and compare it with  Brüggen's own suggestions involving the notion of an empty point of view. Third, we insist that the notion of experiential perspective should be construed broadly and include cognitive or belief-like imagination.
