Gendler on the puzzle(s) of imaginative resistance

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

Gendler reformulated the so-called imaginability (or imaginative) puzzle in terms of authorial breakdown. The main idea behind this move was to isolate the essential features displayed by the alleged problematic cases and to specify a puzzle general enough to be applied to a variety of different types of imaginative resistance. I offer various criticisms of Gendler’s approach to imaginative resistance that also raises some more general points on the recent literature on the topic.
