Roy Wood Sellars: "Why Naturalism and Not Materialism" (1927)

"...Another weakness of materialism was its whole‑hearted identification of itself with the principles of an elementary mechanics. It was too naively scientific. We may call this species of materialism reductive materialism."

Contemporary materialism isn't naively mechanistic.
