Conference on Depiction and Perception

The conference aims to shed light on the interactions between theories  of depiction and the philosophy of perception. Some core issues concern  the capacities used for picture perception, imagination, aesthetic  response, veridicality, and the difference between 'seeing-in' and 'face to face' perception.
