Urban, P., How do we understand others? Study on social understanding and sharing of the world not only in humans. Parva Philosophica, vol. 23. Prague: Philosophy. 2016

The book is a contribution to current debates about social cognition and shared intentionality in humans and some other animals. The author links the philosophical perspective with current knowledge in the field of psychology and animal behaviour research. Against the backdrop of criticism of the concept of social understanding as attribution of mental states to other beings, the author clarifies the immediate nature of social understanding, the role of body expression and the relation of sharing the world to humans and other living creatures.
