Press for SI: The Evolution of SI on ABC Radio National – Afternoons

Simon Angus appeared today on ABC’s Radio National – Afternoons, hosted by Michael Mackenzie, to discuss joint work with Jonathan Newton recently published in PLoS Computational Biology (and featured on this site here).

The discussion mostly focused on the background to the paper — namely the Vygotskian intelligence hypothesis of Michael Tomasello and others, and his recent research that aims to illicit the key cognitive differences between human infants and related apes in settings in which the hall-marks of shared intentionality might be expected to arise.
