Abstract

Through the mental alignment that sustains social interactions, the minds of individuals are shared. One interpretation of shared intentionality involves the ability of individuals to perceive features of the action scene from the perspective of the group (the "we-mode"). This first-person plural approach in social cognition is distinct from and preferable to the second-person approach proposed in the target article.
