Stock, Kathleen. Imagining and Fiction: Some Issues
2013, Philosophy Compass 8: 887-96
Added by: Andrea Blomqvist
Abstract: In this paper, I survey in some depth three issues arising from the connection between imagination and fiction: (i) whether fiction can be defined as such in terms of its prescribing imagining; (ii) whether imagining in response to fiction is de se, or de re, or both; (iii) the phenomenon of 'imaginative resistance' and various explanations for it.
Comment: Very introductory text which would be suitable for undergraduates in a philosophy of fiction module.
