    The Central Problem of Cognitive Science: The Rationalist–Empiricist Divide.Henry Plotkin - 2008 - Journal of Mind and Behavior 29 (1-2).

In recent decades, partly due to the increasing influence of evolutionary thought in psychology, the argument has become central in cognitive science as well, but it will remain empirically intractable until further advances occur in neurogenetics, neuroscience, and how these tie in to fundamental psychological mechanisms and processes.

    Evolution and the Human Mind: How Far Can We Go?1: Henry Plotkin.Henry Plotkin - 2001 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 49:267-275.
    There is a close coincidence in time between the appearance of psychology as a science and the rise of evolutionary theory. The first laboratory of experimental psychology was established in Germany by Wilhelm Wundt just as Darwin's writings were beginning to have their enormous impact, especially as they might be applied to understanding the human mind. Psychology is an important discipline because it straddles the boundary between the biological sciences and the social or human sciences of anthropology, sociology and economics. (...)

    Necessary Knowledge.Henry Plotkin - 2007 - Oxford University Press.
    'Necessary knowledge' tackles one of the big questions - what knowledge do we possess at birth, and what do we learn along the way?
