Can "radical" simulation theories explain psychological concept acquisition ?

Abstract : This paper examines the response offered by Robert Gordon to the question how an interpreter can reach the correct content of others'psychological states (beliefs & desires). It exposes the main problems raised by Gordon's proposal, and provides a tentative solution that emphasizes the structuring role of counterfactual reasoning in embedding simulations and deriving facts that are holding across them.
