Symposia: 221/222 - Fiction and Social Cognition

Saturday 8 July
14.30 - 16.10 h.
Machado
We learn about others and how to learn about others through everyday encounters. These skills are also developed and refined through engagement with fictional worlds. From the capacity to read others, to the development of attitudes, fiction impacts social cognition.
