Toribio J. (2002) Modularity, relativism, and neural constructivism. Cognitive Science Quarterly 2: 1–14. Fulltext at
Fodor (1983) claims that the modularity of mind (the relatively encapsulated, insulated, special -purpose nature of the psychological mechanisms of perception) helps undermine relativism in various forms. I shall show first, that the modular vision of mind provides insufficient support for the rejection of (most forms of) relativism, and second, that an alternative (‘neural constructivist’) model may, in fact, provide a better empirical response to the relativist challenge.
