- nature of mind-reading capacity – assumption of what it is
Understand Other s Actions
2 fundamental aspects
Child is anticipating and figuring out the goal and think out what the person is trying to do
Rational Imitation in ContentGergley

At 14months, able to differentiate between behaviour inconsistencies (slidehand and head diff
pictureinfant can rationalize based on context
Today!
Folk psych (TT and ST) vs. Interaction theory
Galager reading – paradigm of no access to other peoples content of mind – perception dont
allow us to gain that knowledge -
therefore critiques self-awareness and being aware of other people as well
- 500 years ago, Descartes... why cant we think that way?
- we are scientists, make observations – dont really knowcreate these stories to bridge the
Intersubjective gap – come with a theory – ST and TT – having this hypothesis and working
theory of whats going on in other people
- galager points at infants and what they are able to infer and interact from otherspossibility of
primary perceptual process (intersubjectivity) that connects us allPHILOSOPHICAL
ASSUMPTIONpart of early adult interaction make-up
Theory theoryautomatic, innate (dont see evidence of till when they are 4yrs), we went over a study
that even 6m have a social sense and ToM – universal grammar (Chomsky)mechanism that allows us to
generate theories about what other s think – cognitively driven
Simulation Theorysome same assumptions of TT – both part of folk psych. – information is something
you embody, using your own visceral experience of coming up with theories based on fundamental
concepts – not what you perceive instantly, but something you have to think about
