||The epistemology of imagination asks whether imagination justifies belief and, if so, how. Philosophers have traditionally been skeptical about the epistemic role of the imagination. After all, how could merely imagining something give you any reason to believe that it is true? You can imagine whatever you want, and the imagination is characterized precisely by its insensitivity to the actual state of the world. Against this skepticism, many philosophers have argued that imagination plays an epistemic role in domains as varied as modal epistemology, mindreading, physical and spatial reasoning, scientific models, scientific and philosophical thought experiments, and reasoning about future and hypothetical experiences.
