    Abstract

    In this commentary on Martin Lenz's recent book, Socialising Minds, I take up his view that earlly-modern philosophers defend three kinds of contact between minds - ontological, linguistic and medical. With reference to two of these models, linguistic and medical, I make the case that each also has a political dimension. To fully appreciate the character of mind to mind contact, as early-modern theorists understood it, we need to take this political dimension into account.
