Langland-Hassan objects to Currie and Ravenscroft’s recreativistview of the imagination.

Langland-Hassan objects to Currie and Ravenscroft’s recreativistview of the imagination. Do his objections refuteBalcerak Jackson’s view about the epistemic role of the imagination? In her paper “Justification by Imagination,”Balcerak Jackson developsa view of how the imagination provides evidence andjustifies beliefs. In arguing for her view, she appeals to Currie and Ravenscroft’s idea that the imagination recreatesor simulatesperceptual experiences. However, in his book Explaining Imagination, Langland-Hassanobjects to the recreativist view of imagination. Do his objections to the recreativist view refuteBalcerak Jackson’s viewof how the imagination provides evidence and justifies beliefs, or can Balcerak Jackson’sview withstandtheseobjections? Your paper should include the following three parts(roughly equal spacedevoted to each): 1.Explain Balcerak Jackson’s view ofthe epistemicrole of the imagination and how the recreativist view features in her argumentsfor it. 2.Explain one or more of Langland-Hassan’s objections to the recreativist view of imagination.3.In the remainder of the paper, do one of the following:a.Defend Balcerak Jackson’s view by responding on her behalf to Langland-Hassan’s objection(s)to the recreativistview. b.Arguethat Balcerak Jackson’s overall view can be preserved(perhapswith slight modifications)even if we grantLangland-Hassan’s objection(s)to the recreativistview. c.Provide originalarguments of your own for why Langland-Hassan’s objection(s)to the recreativist view successfully refute Balcerak Jackson’s view. If you have space to fillin part 3, you can always conclude the paper by raising and responding to an objection to your own arguments (though this isn’t required).
