    Experimental Philosophy of Mind: Free Will and a Scientific Conception of the World.Morteza Izadifar - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):41-59.
    Experimental philosophy has been engaged in many fields of philosophy and has tried to challenge philosophy from a new horizon. In this article, I have tried to examine what the role of sciences are in altering people’s intuition about free will. Could science educate people’s philosophical intuitions? If yes, should we still rely on their intuition as a rational instrument for our philosophical questions? Do science plus cultural and social differences effect on folks’ view? In this cross-cultural research, the emphasis (...)

    Cultural Metaphors in Hungarian Folk Songs as Repositories of Folk Cultural Cognition.Judit Baranyiné Kóczy - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):136-163.
    The paper explores the status of NATURE metaphors in Hungarian folk songs with respect to their representation and transmission of folk culture and worldview. Employing a Cultural Linguistic analysis, metaphors are observed from three perspectives: in relation to cultural schemas, generic-level conceptual metaphors, and experiential motivation. NATURE metaphors are to a large extent framed by cultural experience regarding their experiential basis, conceptual structure and relation with other cultural conceptualizations.

    An Introduction to the Cognitive Science of Religion: Connecting Evolution, Brain, Cognition, and Culture, Written by Claire White. [REVIEW]Ryan Lemasters - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):179-183.
  4. The Development of Theory of Mind in Saudi Children.Ruba Abdelmatloub Moawad - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):164-178.
    Theory of Mind is considered a person’s ability to understand his or her own mind and the minds of others, it includes a social-cognitive skill with implications for many aspects of children’s life, such as social competence, peer acceptance and early success in school. The aims of this research were to study the development of Theory of Mind and to investigate differences in the performance of Theory of Mind tasks across age groups and by gender in Saudi children. 264 children, (...)

    The Memorability of Supernatural Concepts: Some Puzzles and New Theoretical Directions.Joseph Sommer, Julien Musolino & Pernille Hemmer - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):90-135.
    We evaluate the literature on the memorability of supernatural concepts, itself part of a growing body of work in the emerging cognitive science of religion. Specifically, we focus on Boyer’s Minimally Counterintuitive hypothesis according to which supernatural concepts tap a cognitively privileged memory-enhancing mechanism linked to violations of default intuitive inferences. Our assessment reveals that the literature on the MCI hypothesis is mired in empirical contradictions and methodological shortcomings which makes it difficult to assess the validity of competing theoretical models, (...)

    How Shame and Guilt Influence Perspective Taking: A Comparison of Turkish and German Cultures.Sinem Söylemez, Mehmet Koyuncu, Oliver T. Wolf & Belgüzar Nilay Türkan - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):20-40.
    Shame and guilt are negative social emotions that are sensitive to culture, and findings from past research have suggested that shame impairs perspective-taking cognitive ability more than guilt does. However, to the best of our knowledge, there is a lack of research that has considered culture and experimentally tested the effect of shame and guilt on perspective-taking. Taking an experimental perspective, this study aimed to examine how shame and guilt states affect perspective-taking performance in two different cultures. Data from German (...)

    Modeling Emotion Contagion Within a Computational Cognitive Architecture.Ron Sun, Joseph Allen & Eric Werbin - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):60-89.
    The issue of emotion contagion has been gaining attention. Humans can share emotions, for example, through gestures, through speech, or even through online text via social media. There have been computational models trying to capture emotion contagion. However, these models are limited as they tend to represent agents in a very simplified way. There exist also more complex models of agents and their emotions, but they are not yet addressing emotion contagion. We use a more psychologically realistic and better validated (...)

  8. Buckets of Steam and Left-Handed Hammers. The Fool’s Errand as Signal of Epistemic and Coalitional Dominance.Radu Umbreș - 2022 - Journal of Cognition and Culture 22 (1-2):1-19.
    In various professional groups, experts send rookies on absurd tasks as a joke. The fool’s errand appears in factories and hospitals, in elite schools and scout camps, among soldiers, sailors, and airmen. Why are newcomers deceived and humiliated, and why are pranks relatively similar and remarkably persistent over time? I propose that the cultural success and the recurrent features of the fool’s errand are based on evolved cognitive mechanisms activated by apprenticeship as social learning and group induction. Epistemic vigilance explains (...)
