Competence: What's in? What's out? Who knows?

  • Joshua Alexander (a1), Ronald Mallon (a2) and Jonathan M. Weinberg (a3)

Knobe's argument rests on a way of distinguishing performance errors from the competencies that delimit our cognitive architecture. We argue that other sorts of evidence than those that he appeals to are needed to illuminate the boundaries of our folk capacities in ways that would support his conclusions.
