The Epistemology of Fiction and the Question of Invariant Norms (Article)
Title: The Epistemology of Fiction and the Question of Invariant Norms
Author: Jonathan Gilmore
Abstract: This study addresses the process by which which we discover what states of affairs, facts, and so on, hold within a fiction when that data is not supplied explicitly through a narrator's or author's descriptions. My question is whether the epistemic norms we observe in discovering what is true about our actual experience hold invariantly over the process by which we discover what is true within a fiction.

Imagination (Book Section)
Title: Imagination
Author: Jonathan Gilmore
Editor: John Gibson and Noel Carroll
Abstract: A study of the nature of the imagination and its role in our experience of narrative works of art. Questions addressed include: How do our imaginings interact with our beliefs in our understanding of a fictional story? How can fiction-directed emotions (emotions triggered by what is only fictional) be explained through appeal to the functions of the imagination? And, What is the connection between the theoretical and practical norms we observe in our mental responses to the real world and those norms we adopt in experiencing fictional worlds?
