Resumen

La problemática que define este artículo se concentra en tratar de explorar y caracterizar las relaciones existentes entre el desarrollo de las Teorías Infantiles de la Mente (ToM) y el Desarrollo del Lenguaje. Conceptualmente, la propuesta se inscribe dentro del área temática de la Cognición Social y en particular acerca de las Teorías Infantiles de le Mente1. En las investigaciones de las últimas décadas, la teoría clásica de la falsa creencia se ha tomado como indicador de la posesión de una Teoría de la Mente a los 4 años, momento para el cual, en el niño se manifiesta un cambio radical en la comprensión de la mente. Aquí se discuten los hallazgos de los estudios que vincula ToM y lenguaje y se propone un contexto más amplio para analizar los datos de estudios más recientes.
Palabras Clave: Teorías Infantiles de la Mente, Falsas Creencias, Lenguaje, Cognición Social.
