Evolutionary psychology can ill afford adaptionist and mentalist credulity

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23 (6):1013-1014 (2000)
Abstract
The idea that dreams function as fright-simulations rests on the adaptionist notion that anything that has form has function, and psychological argument relies on the mentalist assumption that dream reports are accurate reports of experienced events. Neither assumption seems adequately supported by the evidence presented. [Revonsuo].
