TITLE: The Development of Commonsense Psychology
ABSTRACT:
Human social behavior is organized through the application of a conceptual system of Commonsense Psychology (also variously called Theory of Mind and Folk Psychology). In this talk, I will present a theoretical approach to the nature of Commonsense Psychology that hinges on the integration of first-person and third-person forms of understanding action. Next I will describe how Commonsense Psychology may be constructed during early development through participation in episodes of social interaction. I will then distinguish among different developmental levels of commonsense psychology. In particular, I will focus on the transition at the end of infancy from interactive to individualistic forms of understanding, and present some evidence that supports this transition.
