  1. Kathleen Lennon (2015). Imagination and the Imaginary. Routledge.
    The concept of the imaginary is pervasive within contemporary writing concerning the self, the body and social groupings. This work explores the links between imagination, conceived of as some kind of faculty, the faculty of creating images or forms, and that of the imaginary, the domain of affectively laden images . A conception of the imaginary is distilled which characterises it not as a domain of illusion posited in opposition to the real, but rather as that by which the real (...)

  2. Kathleen Lennon (2011). Imagination and the Expression of Emotion. Ratio 24 (3):282-298.
    Many writers offer accounts of our grasp of the expressive gestures of others, or of the expressive content of works of art, in terms of our imagining the experiences of another, or ourselves having certain experiences, or, in the case of works of art, a persona to have experiences. This invocation of what Kant would term, the reproductive imagination, in the perception of expressive content, is contested in this paper. In its place it is suggested that the detection of expressive (...)

  7. Kathleen Lennon (2004). Imaginary Bodies and Worlds. Inquiry 47 (2):107 – 122.
    In this paper I distil a concept of the imaginary with which to make good the claim that our mode of embodied subjectivity is an imaginary embodiment in an imaginary world. The concept of the imaginary employed is not one in which imaginary worlds are contrasted with the real, but one in which imagination is a condition of there being a real for us. The images and forms in terms of which our imagined bodies and worlds are constituted carry, in (...)

  8. Kathleen Lennon (2003). Naturalizing and Interpretive Turns in Epistemology. International Journal of Philosophical Studies 11 (3):245 – 259.
    In this paper I want to suggest that causal and interpretive approaches to epistemology are in tension with one another. Drawing on the work of hermeneutic writers I suggest that epistemological justification is an interpretive process. The possibility of rational justification requires attention to our locatedness within the domain of reasons, into which we have been culturally initiated. The recognition that there is no transcendent processes of rational justification has to be addressed from within this framework and cannot be resolved (...)

  9. Kathleen Lennon (2000). Normativity, Naturalism and Perspectivity. Philosophical Explorations 3 (2):138 – 151.
    Normative links have been considered a problem for reductionist theories of mind, primarily because of lack of isomorphism between intentional and non-intentional conceptual schemes. The paper suggests a more radical tension between normative rationality and scientific naturalism. Normative explanations involve the recognition that agents are also subjects of experience. The distinctive form of intelligibility they bestow requires engagement with such subjectivity.

    A welcome introduction to one of the most intellectually demanding areas of the undergraduate philosophy curriculum.

    This collection is one of the first to offer feminist perspectives on epistemology from thinkers outside North America. It presents essays from an international group of contributors, including Rosi Braidotti, Gemma Corradi Fiumara, Anna Yeatman, Sabina Lovibond and Liz Stanley. Using approaches and methods from both analytic and continental philosophy, the contributors engage with questions of traditional epistemology and with issues raised by postmodernist critiques. The essays deal with the central question of difference: the difference which a feminist perspective yields (...)

    This paper characterizes a form of materialism which is strongly anti?reductionist with regard to mental predicates. It argues against the functionalist views of writers such as Brian Loar on the basis that the counterfactual interdependencies of intentional states are governed by constraints of rationality embodied in semantic links which cannot be captured in non?intentional, functionalist terms. However, contrary to what is commonly supposed, such anti?reductionism requires neither instrumentalism about the mental nor opposition to a causal explanatory view of intentional explanation. (...)
