Adaptation and its analogues: Biological categories for biosemantics

Hajo Greif
2021 Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part A  
They seek to explain the nature of mind and language by recourse to a natural history of "proper functions" as selected-for effects of language- and thought-producing mechanisms.  ...  However, they remain vague with respect to the nature of the proposed analogy between selected-for effects on the biological level and phenomena that are not strictly biological, such as reproducible linguistic  ...  , and two anonymous reviewers.  ...

The biogenic approach to cognition

Pamela Lyon
2005 Cognitive Processing  
The biogenic approach, on the other hand, starts with the facts of biology as the basis for theorizing and works 'up' to the human case by asking psychological questions as if they were biological questions  ...  Because the anthropogenic approach to cognition is not constrained empirically to the same degree, I argue that the biogenic approach is superior for approaching a general theory of cognition as a natural  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank Jon Opie for his invaluable help in developing the anthropogenic/biogenic distinction, and to two anonymous reviewers whose comments greatly improved the paper.  ...
