Example text

There is, in this respect, a ‘meeting of minds’ between both subjects, such that the fact that both are attending to the same object is open or mutually manifest. The mechanism question is, in effect, a question about the relation between (b) and (c). In crude outline, there are three types of position one might hold here. e. generates mutual awareness, this requires that the causal co-ordinations described in (b) be essentially intentional rational activities. Causal co-ordinations that yield mutual awareness are a form of rational co-operation.

The ‘putting together’ on this picture, which is lacking in the apes, is the directing of the emotion towards an object in a way that constitutes an evaluation of it. What makes it true to say that the child is using spatial concepts in a way that manifests a grip on the idea of a world out there to which she and the adult are responding is her use of such expressions of emotion as primitive predications. 28 Naomi Eilan For it to be true that this is what the child is doing, as Roessler points out, there must be some sense in which this use of affective responses is imbued with some sense of getting it right in some respect.

But some care is needed in expressing the disagreement in this way. 32 Naomi Eilan It is part of the story that Werner and Kaplan tell, and certainly part of the story as I have developed it here, that we only get the first and second person when it is true to say of the child that she can also employ the concept of perception in an essentially third-person way, for example in checking where the adult is looking. This is one difference between their version and other defences of the intersubjectivity approach—for example, Reddy’s (Chapter 5) on which the early dyadic interactions of their own provide for a first- and second-person understanding, independently of any need for triangulation to a third object.
