Belief, Imagination, and Delusion

European Research Institute
University of Birmingham

This conference aims to bring together researchers interested in the nature of belief, imagination, and delusion formation, to reflect on how these areas might interact. The conference will have three distinct streams, with researchers working on the nature of belief or imagination being presented with delusions as a case study against which to reflect on their views. Delusions presented as a test case to belief and imagination theorists would provide a context in which these theorists can reflect on whether to claim delusions as within the scope of their theories, or not.  Researchers in the delusion formation stream will be asked to reflect on accounts of the nature of belief and imagination, and how those fit with models of delusion formation.
