The Development of Mindreading

In this Wireless Philosophy video, Jennifer Nagel gives an overview of the development of mindreading abilities, starting with infant sensitivity to the direction of gaze, and covering the major milestones up to the hidden emotion task, passed at roughly six years of age.

My research focuses on knowledge, belief, and our capacities to track these states in ourselves and others. I’m interested in the history of epistemology, both in the Western tradition back to Plato, and in the Classical Indian and Tibetan traditions.  I also work in contemporary philosophy of mind, with special interests in metacognition and mental state attribution.
