This CARTA series explores the evolution of "Theory of Mind" (ToM), the ability to impute mental states such as beliefs, desires, and intentions to oneself and others, and how ToM makes us uniquely human. Tetsuro Matsuzawa (Kyoto Univ) begins with a discussion about "Mind Reading" in Chimpanzees, followed by Juliane Kaminski (Univ of Portsmouth, UK) on Comparing Apes and Dogs, and Diana Reiss (Hunter College, CUNY) on Reflections of Dolphin and Elephant Minds. Recorded on 10/18/2013. (#25935)
