Horwood Beer-Master: Chomsky's and Dennett's contributions to the book are unrelated and therefore appear at different points. Regarding Chomsky's ideas, I would strongly urge you, as I do everybody, to research the facts before commenting. The book provides a basis in Chomsky's and Skinner's models and how they relate to Darwinism.


Hi JFDerry,

Are you able to expand on this point a bit more? What angle are you taking with relating Chomsky and Skinner's ideas to Darwinism?


Hi Mr.Samsa,

I can do better than that and point you towards a paper containing the relevant section on psycholinguistics:

Derry (2009) Darwin in Disguise. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.tree.2008.10.002

hope this helps
