Reflecting the Mind

Eros Corazza (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Discusses the attribution of attitudes. In attributing to someone an attitude, we usually use constructions like: “Jane believes/desires/wishes/said/…that p”, where the that-clause ‘that p’ should capture what the attributee, Jane, believes/desires/wishes/said/…The conception proposed concentrates on the notion of imagination. In particular, it rests on the notion of transference, i.e. the way one imagines oneself to be another.

Keywords:   attributions, autism, empathy, imagination, mental representations, puzzles, that-clauses, transference
