The developmental paradox of false belief understanding: a dual-system solution

L. C. De Bruin, A. Newen
2012 Synthese  
Second, we present a dual-system solution to the developmental paradox of false belief understanding that combines a layered model of perspective taking with an inhibition-selection-representation mechanism  ...  This paradox follows from the claim that young infants already have an understanding of false belief, despite the fact that they consistently fail the elicited-response false belief task.  ...  We would also like to thank the audience of the workshop 'Reasoning About Other Minds' for their feedback on a related poster presentation.  ...
