  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Fiction; Simulation; Believability; Transportation; Epistemic Vigilance; Defamiliarization.

On the basis of recent evidence collected by different disciplines (social, cognitive, and media psychology, communication science, different subdisciplines of cognitive neurosciences, experimental aesthetics, and the numerically aided phenomenological approach to the study of fiction), I propose a network of interconnected hypotheses concerning the crucial cognitive processes engaged by the persuasive and learning effects of fiction.
