[Xmca-l] Re: Imagination



Hi Mike,

Just as a reference point among many, my own interest in imagination has to do with creative process and design. I offered two Vedic concepts of mind, samskara and vritti, because they seem relevant, in terms of a way to discuss how thinking takes place in the mind that isn't Cartesian in nature.

Admittedly, I am a little confused about how you are using the word "representation" do you mean this in the distributed cognition sense of thinking with things? or did you mean it in terms of Markman & Dietrich (2000) and what they call the "classical view of representation"? Of do you mean representation in terms of art, with signifying something as something else?

I had thought you meant the so-called "classical view of representation," which I consider "Cartesian." Sorry if I mistook that.

There is agreement here that if different starts end up in the same place, something must be true about that!

Kind regards,

Annalisa
