Unification at the cost of realism and precision

Brown, Rachael; Brusse, Carl; Huebner, Bryce; Pain, Ross

Description

Veissiere et al. must sacrifice explanatory realism and precision in order to develop a unified formal model. Drawing on examples from cognitive archeology, we argue that this makes it difficult for them to derive the kinds of testable predictions that would allow them to resolve debates over the nature of human social cognition and cultural acquisition.
