On the Training of Mental Reasoning: Searching the Works of Literature

Boris Galitsky

We build the formalism and design the training software for reasoning about mental states and actions of literature characters, initiated by asking questions in natural language. The students (general audience, as well as children with various mental disorders) are encouraged to inquiry about intentions and desires, knowledge and beliefs, pretending and deceiving of the literature characters. Works of literature are identified based on the patterns of mental interaction between the characters. The role of suggested system in training the decision-making skills is discussed.
