Etiological classification and the acquisition and structure of knowledge

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):72-73 (1998)
Abstract
Millikan's account of how we acquire our most basic concepts might be clarified by a better ontological taxonomy, especially one that distinguishes between natural kinds on the one hand and wholes composed of parts on the other. The two have a different causal basis, which is important because once classification goes beyond the stage of naive induction, it becomes fundamentally etiological.
