The Second Person Pespective
THE SECOND PERSON PERSPECTIVE
9-11 December 2010
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.
