What Fodor means: Some thoughts on reading Jerry Fodor's A Theory of Content and Other Essays

Philosophical Psychology 6 (3):289-301 (1993)
Abstract
Jerry Fodor's Asymmetric Dependency Theory (ADT) of meaning is discussed in the context of his attempt to avoid holism and the relativism it entails. Questions are raised about the implications of the theory for psychological theories of meaning, and brief suggestions are offered for how to more closely link a theory of meaning to a theory of perception
