  1. Douglas K. Symons & Alicia L. Szielasko (2009). Attachment Styles Within Sexual Relationships Are Strategic. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (1):42-43.score: 290.0
    Del Giudice's examination of sex differences in reproductive strategy within an attachment context is well taken. Sex has been studied as behavior within romantic relationships, but attachment styles should also be reflected in strategic behavior within relationships that are sexual. This seems particularly true within adolescence, and sex differences may be better reflected as differences in correlation patterns of process variables than as main effects models.

  2. Douglas K. Symons (2004). The Internalization of Mental State Discourse Contributes to Social Understanding. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):125-126.score: 290.0
    Children's exposure to and participation in mental state discourse contributes to their development of social understanding. Vygotsky's mechanism of internalization is used to account for this process, which has advantages of cultural and linguistic universality. If children internalize mental state discourse, however, then their own use of mental state language should be related to social understanding.

  3. John Symons (2002). Information, Representation, and the Dynamic Systems Approach to Language. Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (5):640-641.score: 60.0
    Shanker & King (S&K) provide a criticism of information-theoretic approaches to language, but the real obstacle to their dynamicist approach is the argument that representations are an indispensable part of any cognitive theory. Since the dynamicist approach has a prima facie anti-representationalist bent, the authors must show why dynamicist views can provide adequate explanations of intelligent behavior.
