Jared Vasil

Current Research Interests

Jared’s interests are in investigating how the motivation and skills for shared intentionality are involved in the genesis of language in human evolution and development; and how, in turn, language modifies evolution, development, and cultural dynamics through aligning or attuning individuals’ perspectives on, or expectations of, how the world works. He aims to investigate this through studies geared towards better understanding the role of linguistic communication in constructing common ground and regulating joint activities. He hopes to pursue these topics from the theoretical viewpoint of active inference and free energy minimization
