Topic areas


The 3rd Avant Conference, hosted by Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin,  Poland, invites participants to explore the full spectrum of social cognition, ranging from the elementary social-cognitive skills that allow people to think and act together, through embodied behavioral coupling and joint intentionality, mechanisms of mind reading and mutual understanding, all the way to group cognition.

Relevant topics include:

  • Socially situated and scaffolded individual cognition
  • Social cognition from an evolutionary, cultural-historical, and ontogenetic perspective
  • Psychological underpinnings of social interaction (joint, multi-agent, collective)
  • Collective intentionality and social ontology
  • Technologically vs. socially extended cognition
  • Distributed cognition and group minds
  • Current debates on mindreading, empathy, social affordances, and the cognitive bases for intersubjectivity
