Title: The Shared Mind
Subtitle: Perspectives on intersubjectivity
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CELCR%2012
Series Title: Converging Evidence in Language and Communication Research 12
Description:

The cognitive and language sciences are increasingly oriented towards the
social dimension of human cognition and communication. The hitherto
dominant approach in modern cognitive science has viewed 'social cognition'
through the prism of the traditional philosophical puzzle of how
individuals solve the problem of understanding Other Minds. The Shared
Mind
challenges the conventional 'theory of mind' approach, proposing
that the human mind is fundamentally based on intersubjectivity: the
sharing of affective, conative, intentional and cognitive states and
processes between a plurality of subjects. The socially shared,
intersubjective foundation of the human mind is manifest in the structure
of early interaction and communication, imitation, gestural communication
and the normative and argumentative nature of language. In this path
breaking volume, leading researchers from psychology, linguistics,
philosophy and primatology offer complementary perspectives on the role of
intersubjectivity in the context of human development, comparative
cognition and evolution, and language and linguistic theory.
