Triadic bodily mimesis is the difference
Research output: Contribution to journal › Debate/Note/Editorial
We find that the nature and origin of the proposed "dialogical cognitive representations" in the target article is not sufficiently clear. Our proposal is that (triadic) bodily mimesis and in particular mimetic schemas-prelinguistic representational, intersubjective structures, emerging through imitation but subsequently interiorized-can provide the necessary link between private sensory-motor experience and public language. In particular, we argue that shared intentionality requires triadic mimesis.
