On Innateness: The Clutter Hypothesis and the Cluster Hypothesis
Graduate studies at Western
|Abstract||The notion of innateness plays a significant role in debates in philosophy, psychology, linguistics, ethology, anthropology, behavioural economics, developmental biology, and various other disciplines. These debates are often about whether some particular trait is or is not innate. Someone is a nativist about trait T if he claims that T is innate, and he is an anti- nativist about T if he claims that T is not innate. From the fact that someone is a nativist about a particular trait it does not follow that he is also a nativist about other traits.|
