Atran's evolutionary psychology: “Say it ain't just-so, joe”

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):583-584 (1998)
Abstract
Atran advances three theses: our folk-biological taxonomy is (1) universal, (2) innate, and (3) the product of natural selection. I argue that Atran offers insufficient support for theses (2) and (3) and that his evolutionary psychology thus amounts to nothing more than a just-so story.
