This workshop on sensory experience brings together some of the best current research on the experience of what’s not there, from both philosophers and scientists. Although different in some ways, hallucinations, dreams, imagination, and virtual reality — all being experiences of what’s not there —overlap and intersect in interesting and important ways. By bringing together a diverse group of top researchers we hope to foster new and unconventional insights into these problem areas.
