PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1990:441 - 444 (1990)
Giere's assessment is that the cognitive sciences, especially cognitive psychology, have much to offer the philosophy of science as it attempts to develop theories of the growth, development, and change of scientific knowledge as human activities. Margolis produces a model of scientific change by drawing from recent work in the cognitive sciences and attempts to show how this model explains salient cases of conceptual change. While agreeing with Giere's assessment, I argue that Margolis provides the wrong model both for scientific change and for how the interaction between cognitive science and philosophy of science should proceed.
