This chapter proposes an alternative approach for understanding how intentions are induced. This approach is based on the assumption that generating intentions in a third person relies on similar mechanisms to those involved in generating first-person intentions. The chapter examines cognitive and cerebral operations supporting the generation of communicative actions and suggests that motor intentions are retrodictive with respect to the neurophysiological mechanisms that generate a given action, while being predictive with respect to the potential intention attribution evoked by a given action in other agents.
