In this collective volume the origins, neurosocial support, and therapeutic
implications of (pre)verbal intersubjectivity are examined with a focus on
implications of the discovery of mirror neurons. Entailing a paradigmatic
revolution in the intersection of developmental, social and neural
sciences, two radical turnabouts are entailed. First, no longer can be
upheld as valid Cartesian and Leibnizian assumptions about monadic subjects
with disembodied minds without windows to each other except as mediated by
culture. Supported by a mirror system, specified in this volume by some of
the discoverers, modes of participant perception have now been identified
which entail embodied simulation and co-movements with others in felt
immediacy. Second, no longer can be retained the Piagetian attribution of
infant egocentricity. Pioneers who have broken new research grounds in the
study of newborns, protoconversation, and early speech perception document
in the present volume infant capacity for interpersonal communion, empathic
identification, and learning by altercentric participation. Pertinent new
findings and results are presented on these topics: (i) Origins and multiple
layers of intersubjectivity and empathy, (ii) Neurosocial support of
(pre)verbal intersubjectivity, participant perception, and simulation of
mind, (iii) From preverbal sharing and early speech perception to meaning
acquisition and verbal intersubjectivity, (iv) New windows on other-centred
movements and moments of meeting in therapy and intervention. (Series B)
