This paper proposes cognitive developmental robotics as a new principle for the design of humanoid robots. This principle may provide ways of understanding human beings that go beyond the current level of explanation found in the natural and social sciences. Furthermore, a methodological emphasis on humanoid robots in the design of artificial creatures holds promise because they have many degrees of freedom and sense modalities and, thus, must face the challenges of scalability that are often
