This groundbreaking text examines contemporary ideas about folk psychology. It draws together disciplines that are as independent to one another as cognitive science and anthropology, whilst authors examine the consensual views of the subject. The contributors all iterate current understandings of folk psychology and that the mechanisms that underlie it need to be revised, supplemented or altogether discarded. This makes the text essential reading for those interested in the field.
