Accounting for Problems in the Philosophy of Fiction: Is it necessary to posit i-desires to solve the paradox of fiction and the puzzle of imaginative resistance?
Harriet recently graduated from The University of Sheffield with a first-class degree in Linguistics and Philosophy. She will continue at this institution in the coming semester, with a postgraduate course in Cognitive Studies. Harriet is fascinated with cognition in all respects, as demonstrated in her essay concerning mental attitudes towards imagination and particularly enjoys cognitive linguistics (she is a firm fan of Chomsky) and hopes to progress her studies with a PhD relevant to this field. She is also an active member of the student community, having acted as social secretary, charity secretary, and inclusions officer for the Philosophy and Tennis societies.
