Abstract/Book Review

In this commentary, I consider several strengths of the position adopted by Racine and Carpendale (2007), but suggest that the authors are in danger of overstating their case. In doing so, they appear to sideline an issue that should be pivotal for accounts of joint attention: how does a child come to arrive at an understanding that people, both themselves and others, have subjective perspectives upon a shared world? I conclude with few comments on the authors' criticisms of my approach to such issues.
