Real objects in fictional situations: an argument for i-desires as indispensable states
Palavras-chave:I-desire. Desire-like imagining. Imagination. Fiction. Pretense.
ResumoIn order to account for our engagements with fiction, several philosophers have recently introduced a class of novel mental states which they have designated as ‘i-desires’ or ‘desire-like imaginings’. Others argue against this claim by denying the existence of i-desire. In this article, I argue that genuine desires fail to make sense of our attitudes towards real objects in fictional situations, and that i-desire is psychologically indispensable in explaining our attitudes in such cases.
