Froese, Tom and Shaun Gallagher. 2012. Getting interaction theory (IT) together. Interaction Studies 13:3, pp. 436–468
We argue that progress in our scientific understanding of the ‘social mind’ is hampered by a number of unfounded assumptions. We single out the widely shared assumption that social behavior depends solely on the capacities of an individual agent. In contrast, both developmental and phenomenological… read more | Article

The problem I want to address is a classic one in the philosophy of mind. In that context it is called the problem of other minds, but it is a problem that is debated in and across a number of disciplines and approaches – the problem of intersubjectivity in phenomenology, empathy or understanding… read more | Article

Gallagher, Shaun. 2010. Defining consciousness. The Emergence of Consciousness: A top-down, social phenomenon?, Cole, Jonathan and Marcelo Dascal † (eds.), pp. 561–569
I review the problem of how to define consciousness. I suggest that rather than continuing that debate, we should turn to phenomenological description of experience to discover the common aspects of consciousness. In this way we can say that consciousness is characterized by intentionality,… read more | Article

Early humans formed language units consisting of global and discrete dimensions of semiosis in dynamic opposition, or ‘growth points.’ At some point, gestures gained the power to orchestrate actions, manual and vocal, with significances other than those of the actions themselves, giving rise to… read more | Article

Social robots are robots designed to interact with humans or with each other in ways that approximate human social interaction. It seems clear that one question relevant to the project of designing such robots concerns how humans themselves interact to achieve social understanding. If we turn to… read more | Article
