Mindreading, Mirroring, and Embodied Cognition

Alvin I. Goldman

  • A fully integrated approach to "theory of mind," which combines philosophical nuance with a full coverage of the scientific evidence
  • A sophisticated approach to mindreading that defends a "duplex," or two-level, approach to the simulation theory
  • A new theory of embodied cognition that preserves the main lines of traditional cognitive science while also taking cognizance of the fact that neural networks are the products of brain evolution
  • A "naturalized" treatment of the metaphysical problem of event individuation, with accompanying proposals for naturalizing other parts of metaphysics as well
