(p.147) 6 How Do We Decipher Others' Minds?
Who Needs Emotions?


Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the issue of deciphering other people's minds. It suggests that the central issue of how to access the mental contents of other individuals can be grounded in the concept of ‘self’, both the narrative self and the embodied self. It explains that the communication between embodied selves operates at a subpersonal level outside the awareness and conscious strategies of the two selves and shows how mental states of others can be accessed through mind reading.

Keywords:   mind reading, narrative self, embodied self, mental states
