Representing self and others
Workshop New Ideas in Social Cognition



12-13 octobre 2017
Salle Jaurès


Metacognitive feelings enable humans to evaluate their own cognitive performances and capacities. These reflective abilities involve metarepresentational resources linked to mind reading, bodily ownership and sensorimotor processes underlying the sense of agency. This workshop has two major goals, the first of which is to investigate the early developmental links between (i) bodily self-awareness, (ii) metacognitive self-evaluation and (iii) reading other minds. Its second goal is to draw heavily on comparative work on the cognition of human infants and of non-human primates.  Metacognitive feelings enable humans to evaluate their own cognitive performances and capacities.
