3) For many simulation theorists, use of simulation is our primary and pervasive way of understanding others. Consider the claim about taking an observational stance. Both TT and ST are based on the idea that our attempts to understand others are always made in the mode of observation. Person A observes the behavior of person B and then resorts to either theory or simulation to predict or explain B’s action. In TT this observational stance involves an explicit third-person perspective. As a thirdperson observer I consult the theory and infer what is in the other’s mind and accordingly predict or explain the other’s behavior.

15 TT and ST, however, want to know, if it is not theory or simulation that provides access to others’ minds, then what? What is the nature of the perceptual and contextual factors that seemingly give us access to the other person’s mental state of attention?

The Church Fathers and, following in their wake much later, participants in the Querelle de la moralité du théâtre (fought fiercely in the 17th century)11 all acknowledged theatre’s ability to exercise an immediate sensual effect on the spectator and trigger strong, even overwhelming emotions based on its presentness.
