Folk biology and external definitions

Hampton, J. A. (1998). Folk biology and external definitions. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 21(4), p. 574.

Abstract

Atran’s thesis has strong implications for the doctrine of externalism in concepts (Fodor 1994). Beliefs about biological kinds may involve a degree of deference to scientific categories, but these categories are not truly scientific. They involve instead a folk view of science itself.
