Seven Puzzles of Thought and How to Solve Them: An Originalist Theory of Concepts

Oxford University Press (2012)
Abstract
Sainsbury and Tye present a new theory, 'originalism', which provides natural, simple solutions to puzzles about thought that have troubled philosophers for centuries. They argue that concepts are to be individuated by their origin, rather than epistemically or semantically. Although thought is special, no special mystery attaches to its nature
