Folk psychology refers to our everyday practice of making sense of actions, both our own and those of others, in terms of reasons. This volume, which is a#x00a0;special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies , brings together new work by scholars from a range of disciplines (anthropology, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy) whose aim is to clarify, develop and challenge the claim that folk psychology may be importantly -- perhaps even constitutively -- related to narrative practices.This book is part of a wider project by its editor, Daniel Hutto, Professor of Philosophical Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, exploring this central issue of consciousness studies.TABLE OF CONTENTSFolk Psychology As Narrative#x00a0;(Daniel Hutto) Storied Minds: Narrative Scaffolding for Folk Psychology#x00a0;(David Herman) Narrative Practices and Theory of Mind: A Developmental Perspective#x00a0;(Katherine Nelson) The Plot Thickens: What Children#x2019;s Stories Tell Us about Mindreading#x00a0;(Michelle Scalise Sugiyama) What#x2019;s the Story Behind Theory of Mind and Autism?#x00a0;(Matthew Belmonte) Talk and Children#x2019;s Understanding of Mind#x00a0;(William Turnbull,#x00a0;Jeremy Carpendale and Tim Racine) Objects In a Storied World#x00a0;(Chris Sinha) Evidentiality and Narrative#x00a0;(Jill de Villiers and Jay Garfield) #x2018;Hearing Is Believing#x2019;: Amazonian Trickster#x00a0;Myths as Folk Psycchological Narratives#x00a0;(Jonathan Hill) Joint Attention in Apes and Humans: Are Humans Unique?#x00a0;(David Leavens and Tim Racine) Telling Stories Without Words#x00a0;(Kristin Andrews) Two Problems With Intersubjectivity#x00a0;(Shaun Gallagher) Mirror In Action#x00a0;(Corrado Sinigaglia) The Narrativ Practice Hypothesis and Externalist Theory Theory#x00a0;(Marc Slors) In Defence of Model Theory#x00a0;(Heidi Maibom) There Are No Folk Psychological Narratives#x00a0;(Matthew Ratcliffe)
