(p.55) 2 Against Metaphysical Naturalism
Mind Design and Minimal Syntax

Wolfram Hinzen (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces, defends, and contrasts the meaning of methodological naturalism with the metaphysical naturalism (‘phyicalism’) that characterizes much contemporary philosophical thought, but perverts the early modern project of a natural philosophy. The essential continuity between Chomsky's contemporary rationalist project in the study of mind design and early modern ‘rationalism’ is analysed.

Keywords:   physicalism, methodological naturalism, rationalism, Chomsky's project
