Comments on William Bechtel's “Looking down, around, and up: Mechanistic explanation in psychology”

Philosophical Psychology 22 (5):565-573 (2009)
Abstract
The first part of this paper deals with the relations between mechanistic explanation and reduction. It is argued that there is no insuperable conflict between the two, but that the mechanistic framework adds requirements that are not acknowledged in the model of property reduction. The second part concerns the relations between organization and environmental factors. Internal organization may be so tightly linked to external context that both have to be considered together
