Abstract: The imagination is typically associated with fantasy and fiction. According to a recent trend in the theory of knowledge and cognitive science, however, there is much more to the imagination: it serves the function of equipping us with knowledge about the world around us. In this talk, Dr Strohminger will discuss this trend and how her Marie Curie research project fits into this broader context.
