Drawing the boundary between low-level and high-level mindreading

Abstract : In order to bring together the cognitive neuroscientific discovery of mirror system and the philosophical account of pretense within a unique theoretical framework of mental simulation, Goldman distinguishes two types of mindreading, respectively, based on low-level and high-level simulation. Yet, in what sense are they really two distinct processes? Here, I will confine myself largely to spelling out a series of points that take issue with the distinction between low-level and high-level mindreading.
