The principle of ontological commitment in pre- and postmortem multiple agent tracking

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (5):466-468 (2006)
This commentary suggests that understanding the “Folk Psychology of Souls” requires studying a problem articulating ontology with psychology: How do human beings, both as perceivers and thinkers, track and refer to (1) living and dead intentional agents and (2) supernatural agents? The problem is discussed in the light of the principle of the ontological commitment in agent tracking.
