Paper war ...

... Go, Fodor.

"Over the years, I’ve been finding it increasingly difficult to figure out which bits of Daniel Dennett’s stuff are supposed to be the arguments and which are just rhetorical posturing."

I think that, over the years, Dennett's "reasoning" has increasingly come to resemble thought disorder.

I like this, too: "... metaphors like ‘evolution selects for what Mother Nature intends it to’ have to be cashed. The rules of the game require respectable adaptationists to give an account of selection-for that doesn’t appeal to agency."
