One thought on “September Books

  1. Not only that, but there are an enormous number of sweeping generalisations in the article. Apparently sceptics are never sceptical about e.g. evolutionary psychology, modern capitalism etc. – certainly not true amongst people I know. I don’t think his tirade against linguistics was fair either – whilst it might be true that computational linguistics is driven at least partly by what is likely to be programmable, theoretical linguistics has no such constraint, or at least not the things I’ve read. I suspect there’s a little of the zeal of the converted in his attitude.
