Infants' minds, mothers' minds, and other minds: How individual differences in caregivers affect the co-construction of mind

  • Elizabeth Meins (a1)
Abstract

Carpendale & Lewis's (C&L's) constructivist account needs greater emphasis on how individual differences in caregivers' impact on the efficacy of epistemic triangle interaction in fostering children's understanding of mind. Caregivers' attunement to their infants' mental states and their willingness to enable infants to participate in exchanges about the mind are posited as important determinants of effective epistemic triangle interaction.
