Overview

The concept of intersubjectivity is common to approaches to interpersonal engagements in early infancy and children's understanding of others' thought and emotion. It may be understood in terms of interpersonal communication, joint attention or a second-order sense of shared representations. This book brings together for the first time senior international figures in the social and behavioural sciences to examine the role of intersubjectivity in early ontogeny. Together, they offer a new understanding of child development, learning and communication and highlight important comparisons with processes in autism and infant ape development.
