Bloom, Paul; German, Tim P.
Cognition, v77 n1 pB25-B31 Oct 16, 2000
Presents two reasons for abandoning the false belief task as a methodology for theory of mind: (1) passing the false belief task requires ability other than theory of mind; and (2) theory of mind need not entail the ability to reason about false beliefs. Concludes with an alternative conception of the role of the false belief task. (Author)
