8. 2. Toomas Lott (Tartu): Thought and its relation to ousia in Plato's Theaetetus 185A-186E

15. 2. Juhana Lemetti : Hobbes on imagining taste, touch and smell

Experiential or sensory imagination is often identified with vision and, sometimes, also with hearing. The rest of the sense modalities are assumed to work in the same way. This paper studies this claim in the context of Thomas Hobbes’s account of imagination, but the discussion may have some significance to other early modern empiristic theories of mind and imagination.
