Simon Baron-Cohen.
Mindblindness: An Essay on Autism and Theory of Mind (Cambridge, Massachusetts: MIT Press, 1995). Part of the series Learning, Development, and Conceptual Change. In Mindblindness, Simon Baron-Cohen presents a model of the evolution and development of "mindreading." [As far as I can tell from reviews, he is not referring to extra-sensory powers, but uses the term "mindreading" to mean the unconscious deductions & educated guesses we make about other peoples' minds -ed] He argues that we mindread all the time, effortlessly, automatically, and mostly unconsciously. It is the natural way in which we interpret, predict, and participate in social behavior and communication. We ascribe mental states to people: states such as thoughts, desires, knowledge, and intentions. Building on many years of research, Baron-Cohen concludes that children with autism, suffer from "mindblindness" as a result of a selective impairment in mindreading. For these children, the world is essentially devoid of mental things. Note: Newsweek 1995/8/14 has an article featuring this book.
