"Ryle-ing the Irreal: sensory imagining as knowing about sensing" - Robert Hopkins (NYU) Friday, Feb. 2 (3:30pm, 115 Peabody)
Scott & Heather Kleiner Lecture Series
Gilbert Ryle claims that perception involves both sensation and thought. Sensory imagining, he holds, though usually considered to involve something like the recreation of sensation, in fact involves only the deployment of perceptual thought. Ryle thus offers the most radical alternative to the account of imagining that has dominated thinking in both philosophy and psychology.
