Imagining Knowledge, a Formal Account of Design

Abstract : Design, as in designing artifacts like cars or computer programs, is one of those aspects of rational agency hardly even mentioned in traditional logical theory. As an engineering discipline, design obviously involves reasoning but seems to depend much more on a mix of factual knowledge, experimenting and imagination. We will present a formal framework for the dynamic interplay between knowledge and imagination inspired by C-K theory Hatchuel and Weil (2003a) and discuss the possible directions for further development of a 'logic of design'.
