Abstract

Recent neuroscientific research on "mirror neurons" (MNs), neurons activated both when we engage in international action and when we engage in intentional action and when we observe the intentional actions of others, has initiated an ongoing debate in regard to questions about social cognition. On one view, MNs are said to constitute simulations through which we are able to understand the actions, or even the mental states, of others. On an alternative view, MNs are an integral part of an enactive perceptual system that contributes to out intersubjective interactions.
