International Conference
THE SECOND PERSON PERSPECTIVE
9-11 December 2010
Berlin

As part of the VW-funded interdisciplinary research project “The Brain – a Social Organ”, Berlin School of Mind and Brain will host a three-day international conference on the foundations of social cognition.

The following main questions will be addressed:

* How can we best describe what social cognition consists in?
* What is the Second Person Perspective? In what sense does it differ from the First and Third Person Perspective?
* How do the different perspectives develop in early childhood? In which way are they related to each other?
* What role does social interaction play for the development of perspective-taking?

Approaches from philosophy of mind, phenomenology, developmental psychology, clinical psychology, and the neurosciences will shed light on these and related questions.

Keynote Speakers:
SHAUN GALLAGHER Orlando
JOSEF PERNER Salzburg
VASUDEVI REDDY Portsmouth
PHILIPPE ROCHAT Atlanta
TANIA SINGER Zurich
DAN ZAHAVI Kopenhagen
