Abstract

DIAS, Álvaro Machado. Theoretical discussion and conceptual pattern analysis with data mining. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 179-186. ISSN 1413-294X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-294X2011000200009.

More than just a theory or a model, Theory of Mind represents a field of studies concerned with the ability to prospect someone else's intentions. Aiming to contribute to theoretical discussion and the interpretation of the literature on the matter, this study presents: 1. A conceptual map of the field, based on data mining/text mining techniques; 2. A new and advanced conceptual framework focused on informational ToM studies; 3. A critical discussion of the extensions and limits of the most prominent models, based on the outputs of the data/text mining analysis and on the theoretical perspectives that were previously raised.

Keywords : theory of mind; data mining; cognitive science; epistemology.
