Abstract: Humans are relational beings: from understanding words like mother and bigger to mathematical operations to map reading, knowing relations is indispensable to our cognition. How do we become relational? In this talk I will chart the development of the relational mind in three lines of investigation: (1) Understanding the initial state—the basic relations that humans and/or other animals possess; (2) Outlining the learning tools—by what means and how we learn to become relational thinkers; (3) Investigating the social relational mind—how we acquire and process complex social relations.
