Résumé

Based on transportation theory, research shows that reading fiction affects empathy. Also, there are studies that show how reading fiction affects theory of mind. In a similar line, some research show that playing non-violent video games that include storytelling may have prosocial benefits and also affects theory of mind. We are therefore interested in further clarification of the relationship between reading and game playing on the one hand and empathy and theory of mind on the other.

 

Basée sur la transportation theory, la recherche montre que la lecture de fiction affecte l’empathie. Il y a également des études démontrant comment la lecture de fiction affecte la théorie de l’esprit. De même certaines recherches montrent que jouer à des jeux-vidéos non-violents avec des éléments narratifs peut favoriser la sociabilité et affecte également la théorie de l’esprit. Nous nous intéressons donc à un éclaircissement complémentaire de la relation entre la lecture et le jeu-vidéo d’un côté et entre l’empathie et la théorie de l’esprit de l’autre côté.
