Editorial Reviews


Even if one is not convinced by Machery's idea that concepts are not natural kinds, and that'concept' needs to be eliminated from the vocabulary of psychology, Doing without Concepts might still be taken as convincingly showing that in their search for the properties common to most or all concepts, psychologists have been looking in the wrong place. Andre J. Abath, The Psychological Quarterly Vol 62 No 244 July 2011
