14 March 2018, Logic(s) for Imagination, Bochum, Germany

Date: Wednesday 14 March 2018
Location: Bochum, Germany

On the 14th March 2018, there will be a workshop "Logics for Imagination" affiliated with the conference "Philosophy of imagination". It aims to explore and compare different ways to model the logic of imagination, addressing among other things, modelling acts of imagination as a non-normal modal operator, ceteris paribus imagination, the role of agency, the interpretation of normal modalities as imagination and/or conceivability modalities, and first-order extensions of existing logics for imagination.

The speakers are: Christopher Badura, Lisa Benossi, Francesco Berto, Joan Casas Roma, Joan Gimeno Simó, Dominik Kauss, Pierre Saint-Germier and Heinrich Wansing.

There are some slots available for contributed talks and it is my pleasure to invite submissions for those. Please send your abstract to with subject LOGIC. Abstracts should not exceed 3000 words (incl. references). Accepted authors will give a talk of about 20 minutes followed by a short discussion.
