Social reality appears to be uniquely human
Chapter 12 endnote 26, from Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:
The human capacity for social reality appears unique in the animal kingdom. [...] Other scientists have similar views.
Some scientists believe that animals cannot learn from one another and do not actively instruct one another, or that they do not have a complete theory of mind, meaning they are limited in their ability to represent the intentions and goals of others in a way that allows cooperation and building cultural institutions.
