The Case for Modularity: Sin or Salvation?

Abstract : The case for cognitive modules rests on several convergin lines of evidence. Functional design (analogy), ethology (homology), universality, precocity of acquisition, independence from perceptual experience (poverty of stimulus), selective pathology (cerebral impairment), resistance to inhibition (hyperactivity), and cultural transmission. None of these criteria may be necessary, but the presence of all or some is compelling, if not conclusive.
