A logical investigation of false-belief tasks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We describe an interdisciplinary research project that uses logic to investigate psychological reasoning tests called false-belief tasks. The goal of the project is to analyze and give logical formalizations of false-belief tasks using a range of modal proof-systems, and moreover, to use such logical analyses as a basis for empirical studies of how children with Autism Spectrum Disorder reason in false-belief tasks.
