According to causal models of folk psychology, humans understand others by attributing to them beliefs and desires that cause behavior.Normative accounts of folk psychology seek to ground our social competences in cultural expectations rather than in mechanistic causal models of individuals. This interdisciplinary workshop will explore the idea that normative reasoning in terms of social structures, identities, cultures, relationships, bodies, etc. and practices such as coordinating, explaining, and justifying behavior are essential to human social understanding.
