  2. Henry Plotkin (2008). The Central Problem of Cognitive Science: The Rationalist–Empiricist Divide. Journal of Mind and Behavior 29 (1-2).
    One of the oldest and most fundamental distinctions and disputes of classical epistemology is that between the rationalists and empiricists. In recent decades, partly due to the increasing influence of evolutionary thought in psychology, the argument has become central in cognitive science as well, but it will remain empirically intractable until further advances occur in neurogenetics, neuroscience, and how these tie in to fundamental psychological mechanisms and processes.

  6. Henry C. Plotkin (2001). Evolution and the Human Mind: How Far Can We Go? In D. Walsh (ed.), Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement. Cambridge University Press 267-275.
    There is a close coincidence in time between the appearance of psychology as a science and the rise of evolutionary theory. The first laboratory of experimental psychology was established in Germany by Wilhelm Wundt just as Darwin's writings were beginning to have their enormous impact, especially as they might be applied to understanding the human mind . Psychology is an important discipline because it straddles the boundary between the biological sciences and the social or human sciences of anthropology, sociology and (...)
