Xenophobia and other reasons to wonder about the domain specificity of folk-biological classification

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):575-576 (1998)
Abstract
Atran adds a synthesis of much of the literature on folk-biological classification to important new experimental data relevant to long-standing inferences about the structure of folk taxonomies. What we know about such systems is somewhat overstated, and key issues remain unresolved, especially concerning the centrality of “generic species,” the primacy of “general purpose” taxonomies, and domain specificity.
