Philosophical Explorations 1 (3):201 – 214 (1998)
|Abstract||In the debate between internalists and externalists in philosophy of language and philosophy of psychology, internalists such as Jerry Fodor have invoked a strong a priori argument to show that externalist descriptions can play no role in a science of the human mind and of human action. Shifting the ground of the debate from psychology to social science, I try to undermine Fodor's reasoning. I also point to a role for externalist theorising in the area where the socio-semantic theory of the 'division of linguistic labour' makes contact with traditional micro-sociological theorising.|
