Mind-Reading And Joint Attention: Autism, Infant Development, and Adult Intersubjectivity

Adorjan Hall 142, Saint Louis University

At this mini-conference, three internationally known psychologists and philosophers will present papers on human intersubjectivity and mind-reading in typically developing infants, children with autism spectrum disorder, and fully functional adults. This research helps us to understand the nature of social cognition among human beings. It shows the way in which human beings are biologically apt to see others as just like me, and so it helps us to understand the way in which intellectual humility is possible and natural for human beings. Speakers for the conference are Naomi Eilan (Warwick University), Peter Hobson ( Unversity College London), and Vasu Reddy (University of Portsmouth). This mini-conference is free and open to the public. It will be held November 10, 2014, at Saint Louis University, in Adorjan 142.
