Do Apes Read Minds?
Typically, folk psychology is understood narrowly as mindreading—attributing beliefs and desires to others. In this talk inspired by my book Do Apes Read Minds? Toward a New Folk Psychology, I defend a new way of understanding folk psychology that is informed by the best science in social psychology, developmental psychology, and comparative cognition research. On the view I develop, the folk do not understand one another primarily as receptacles of propositional attitudes, but rather as whole persons with histories, social contexts, personalities, moods, emotions, and so forth.
