A mass assembly of associative mechanisms: A dynamical systems account of natural social interaction

  • Nicholas D. Duran (a1), Rick Dale (a2) and Daniel C. Richardson (a3)

Abstract

The target article offers a negative, eliminativist thesis, dissolving the specialness of mirroring processes into a solution of associative mechanisms. We support the authors' project enthusiastically. What they are currently missing, we argue, is a positive, generative thesis about associative learning mechanisms and how they might give way to the complex, multimodal coordination that naturally arises in social interaction.
