Interview with Michael Tomasello (video)

An interview with Michael Tomasello from October 2008:

"Michael Tomasello - Interview"

The interview covers a broad range of topics from the notions of cooperation and shared intentionality to reasoning and the origins of human communication.

Unfortunately, the audio is not in sync with video!

See my previous posts on Michael Tomasello:
- Jürgen Habermas's laudatio to Michael Tomasello (2009)
- Jürgen Habermas's review of "Origins of Human Communication" (2009)
- Tomasello's book "Why We Cooperate".

See also a lecture by Tomasello on
- "Origins of Human Cooperation and Morality" (video, 2012)

Michael Tomasello is an American developmental psychologist, and since 1998 co-director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany.
