    Empathy, Like-Mindedness, and Autism.Janette Dinishak - forthcoming - In Mark Risjord (ed.), Normativity and Naturalism in the Philosophy of the Social Sciences. Routledge.
    In this paper I examine what autism can teach us about the role of like-mindedness in the achieving of interpersonal understanding. I explain how recent work on affective, sensory, perceptual, and cognitive atypicalities in people with autism underscores forms of like-mindedness that are largely neglected in contemporary discussions of interpersonal understanding. Autists and non-autists may have sensory, perceptual, and movement differences that make for pervasive differences in their perspectives on and ways of being in both the physical and social world.

    Wittgenstein on the Place of the Concept “Noticing an Aspect”.Janette Dinishak - 2013 - Philosophical Investigations 36 (1):320-339.
    Seeing aspects is a dominant theme in Wittgenstein's 1940s writings on philosophy of psychology. Interpreters disagree about what Wittgenstein was trying to do in these discussions.

Further, Wittgenstein invites us to engage in his “placing activity,” and by doing so (...)

    A Critical Examination of Mindblindness as a Metaphor for Autism.Janette Dinishak - 2013 - Child Development Perspectives 7 (2):110-114.
    Metaphor—describing one thing in terms of another—is a common tool used to grasp what is unknown. Perhaps because we do not understand a lot about autism, many metaphors appear in both scientific and nonscientific descriptions of autism. The metaphor of mindblindness is especially pervasive in the scientific literature. We discuss three limitations of this metaphor: It obscures the fact that both autistic and non autistic individuals contribute to the social and communicative difficulties between them, it carries strong negative connotations, and (...)
