Supposition has been frequently invoked in many fields within philosophy, including aesthetics, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and ethics. However, there is a striking lack of consensus about the proper definition of supposition. What is supposition? Is supposition a sui generis type of mental state or is it reducible to some other type of mental state? These are the main questions Maria Arcangeli explores in this book. She examines the nature of supposition, including phenomenology and emotionality as well as the widespread distinction between two types of supposition: sensory or perception-like imagination and belief-like imagination. She then assesses rival explanations of supposition, cognitive and non-cognitive, before arguing for supposition as a form of imaginative primitivism. This book will be of great interest to students of philosophy of psychology, aesthetics, metaphysics, philosophy of mind and ethics.
