Re: [CogLAs] hueypriest comments on Noam Chomsky answers your questions (Ask Me Anything video interview)Ah, but he took down BF Skinner in 1959, and he used a new kind of argument to do it, at least I think it was new, at least for that purpose. It was a computational argument. Very important.

Chomsky on cognitive science (and anarchy). On cognitive science:
" Cognitive science ought to be concerned‹should be just a part of biology.
It's concerned with the nature, the growth, the development, maybe
ultimately the evolution, of a particular subsystem of the organism, namely
the cognitive system, which should be treated like the immune system or the
digestive system, the visual system, and so on. When we study those systems,
there are a number of questions we ask."
He doesn't think that most cognitive science is doing that.
