To produce this book, they had to work together to forge links between very different domains, and the synthesis they achieve is remarkable for the new insights it provides into old questions about innate versus acquired sources of knowledge and the nature of cognitive development. The ideas are explored through dynamic models inspired by a new kind of “developmental connectionism,” a marriage of connectionist models and developmental neurobiology, forming a new theoretical framework for the study of innzteness development.


Read it and it’s companion: The ideas in Rethinking Innateness have been influential and developed in a number of ways.

I was never comfortable with Chomsky nor with the idea of a “human uniqueness” with regards to language, for animals clearly have language which presumably has its own grammatical structures But they argue that evidence from a number of sources, such elmwn brain plasticity the ability of a brain to change its response properties during development shows that information cannot be hard-wired in this way.

These include constraints at the level of representation, architecture, and timing; typically, behaviors arise through the interaction of constraints at several of these levels.
