Was Heisst "Sich Vorstellen, Eine Andere Person zu Sein"?

Grazer Philosophische Studien 90 (1):307-316 (2014)

Abstract

Talking about “being another person”, many different things may be meant. I make use of Wollheim’s distinction between three different modes of imagination and invoke four different kinds of possible content of what may be imagined. In effect, I aim at a hopefully complete overview of the possible imaginative projects of “imagining being another person”. I try to keep an eye on the role of numerical identity in each case.
