InThe mind doesn’ t work that way, Jerry Fodor argues that CTM has problems explaining abductive or global inference, but that. Evolution in Mind. These books suggest, in quite similar terms, how one might combine CTM with a comprehensive psycholog-ical nativism and with biological principles borrowed from a neo-Darwinist account of evolution.
