%A Jessica Lindblom %A Tom Ziemke %T Social Situatedness: Vygotsky and Beyond %X The concept of ?social situatedness?, i.e. the idea that the development of individual intelligence requires a social (and cultural) embedding, has recently received much attention in cognitive science and artificial intelligence research. The work of Lev Vygotsky who put forward this view already in the 1920s has influenced the discussion to some degree, but still remains far from well known. This paper therefore aims to give an overview of his cognitive development theory and discuss its relation to more recent work in primatology and socially situated artificial intelligence, in particular humanoid robotics. %K social situatedness, Vygotsky, cognitive development, primatology %P 71-78 %E Christopher G.
