Professional "Philosophers" take note. Jack Balkin explains how language works. You can call it linguistic realism or in his case, legal realism. Just don't call it Legal Realism.

Looking around for discussions of cognitive science as theology I found a great quote: "Cognitive science is the creation science of psychology." It's Skinner.

More links from Leiter: Fodor contra Fodor. Fodor saying that all Putnam's arguments are a priori reminds me of Hans Kung saying that Freud's arguments are "theologically unsound." The first is a priori-pot/kettle and the second is a priori-apples/oranges but I have the same response. I should add a new tag for comedy.
