Remarks on Fodor on Having Concepts
Fodor offers a novel argument against Bare‐bones Concept Pragmatism (BCP). He alleges that there are two circularities in BCP's account of concept possession: a circularity in explaining concept possession in terms of the capacity to sort; and a circularity in explaining concept possession in terms of the capacity to draw inferences. We argue that neither of these circles is real.
