This chapter presents correspondence between Frank Jackson, and Steve Stich and Kelby Mason. The goal of showing the exchange here is to understand where the differences lie in their notions about the nature of folk psychology and the relevance of various putative facts about cross-cultural variation in intuition. They pose questions for each other with the objective of clarifying each other’s positions in a productive manner. It discusses topics like the subpersonal versus personal level question, the relationship between folk psychology and folk theories, and issues regarding intuition. A major topic of discussion here is whether folk psychology is something in the head—an internalized theory, so to speak—or not.

Keywords:   folk psychology, Frank Jackson, Steve Stich, Kelby Mason, cross-cultural variation, intuition, internalized theory
