Summary: The theory of mind is a primatologist term that arises in studies by Premark and Woodfrutt, and is currently a topic of interest for many disciplines. In this essay, we will address the subject of theory of mind according to its social functions and its relationship with shaping of the mind and the mediating role of language, as well as some of the contributions you can make the study of such education.

The essay concludes that without the theory of mind and mind modeling learning is impossible in human terms.
