Re: [xmca] intersubjectivity = Piaget, mentalisation = LSV

You mention infants HAVE EMOTIONS based upon attachment. 
You also mention intersubjectivity is the process of seeing other persons point of view.

I want to open dialogue and think out loud as I RESPOND.  
When we say that infants HAVE emotions, [subjective phenomenology] I struggle with the notion of emotions as HAVING A RELATIONSHIP that moves us in a process of recognition and response. This movement or e-motion emphasizes SYMMETRICAL ENGAGEMENT through ATTUNEMENT.

Intersubjectivity theory can also be understood NOT as SEEING the other person's point of view [theory of mind] but rather as attunement and engagement [PERCEIVED and EXPERIENCED communication BETWEEN self and other
