Fodor's frame problem and relevance theory (reply to chiappe & kukla)

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 19 (3):530-532 (1996)
Abstract
Chiappe and Kukla argue that relevance theory fails to solve the frame problem as defined by Fodor. They are right. They are wrong, however, to take Fodor’s frame problem too seriously. Fodor’s concerns, on the other hand, even though they are wrongly framed, are worth addressing. We argue that Relevance thoery helps address them.
