  1. 1. Building for Co-operative Education This brief survey of recent developments in Evolutionary Social Psychology and Evolutionary Educational Psychology will end with some speculative proposals about Building for Co-operation
  2. 2. (Social) space is a (social) product [...] the space thus produced also serves as a tool of thought and of action [...] in addition to being a means of production it is also a means of control, and hence of domination, of power. Change life! Change Society! These ideas lose completely their meaning without producing an appropriate space. A lesson to be learned from soviet constructivists from the 1920s and 30s, and of their failure, is that new social relations demand a new space, and vice-versa. Lefebvre, H. (1991) The Production of Space. Oxford: Blackwell
  3. 3. Implicit influence of other’s intention in prisoner’s dilemma game Haruaki Fukuda [1], Hiroaki Suzuki [1,2], Ayumi Yamada [1] [1] Human Innovation Research Center, Aoyama Gakuin University, [2] Department of Education, Aoyama Gakuin University It is known that we can perceive others’ intentions and goals automatically. Moreover we interpret simple geometrical shapes as animated agent based upon their movements and perceive their intentions and goals. On the other hand, recent researches have demonstrated that people spontaneously adopt and pursue the goals perceived in others’ behavior. This phenomena is called goal contagion and goal contagion can occur even when the goal is not consciously understood. In this study, we examined whether animated agents’ intentions displayed implicitly could influence our social behavior. In the experiment, participants were seated in front of two PC monitors and first performed an irrelevant memory task in one monitor. Then, they performed prisoner’s dilemma game in another monitor while the short animation in which a ball helps or hinders another ball played repeatedly in the monitor that participants had used in the memory task and did not attend to at that time. We found that participants exposed to an animation that implied helping behavior was more cooperative in prisoner’s dilemma game than participants exposed to an animation that implied hindering behavior. In addition, participants could not answer what was displayed in the monitor in which the animation was displayed. This result suggests that others’ intentions can influence our social behavior without consciousness and our cognitive system has unconscious process connecting perception of others’ social intentions with our social behavior.
