Episode 2 | Literature and Fictionality | 15’30” 

What is it that makes us think of something as fictional or non-fictional? The answer is less obvious than one might at first think, and it drags along quite a baggage of other questions. David Davies has taught at McGill since 1987. He has a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Western Ontario, following a BA in Politics, Philosophy and Economics (Wadham College, Oxford) and an MA in Philosophy (Manitoba). His doctoral research and much of his research for the following few years was on the Realism/Anti-Realism debate in contemporary metaphysics, and on related issues in the Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Language. For the past 10 years his research has focussed mainly on metaphysical and epistemological issues in the Philosophy of Art.
