Intentions and Intentionality : Foundations of Social Cognition, Paperback / softback Book

Intentions and Intentionality : Foundations of Social Cognition Paperback / softback

Edited by Bertram F. (Professor of Psychology, Brown University) Malle, Louis J. (University Of Oregon) Moses, Dare A. Baldwin

Part of the A Bradford Book series

Paperback / softback


Social interaction requires social cognition-the ability to perceive, interpret, and explain the actions of others.

This ability fundamentally relies on the concepts of intention and intentionality.

For example, people distinguish sharply between intentional and unintentional behavior; identify the intentions underlying others' behavior; explain completed actions with reference to intentions, beliefs, and desires; and evaluate the social worth of actions using the concepts of intentionality and responsibility. Intentions and Intentionality highlights the roles these concepts play in social cognition.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, it offers cutting-edge work from researchers in cognitive, developmental, and social psychology and in philosophy, primatology, and law.

It includes both conceptual and empirical contributions.
