A Metamodule for Conceptual Integration: Language or Theory of Mind?

Abstract : Those who assume domain-specificity, or conceptual modularity, must face “Fodor's Paradox” (the problem of “combinatorial explosion”). One strategy involves postulating a “metamodule” that evolved to take as input the output of all other specialized conceptual modules, and then integrate these outputs into cross-domain thoughts. It's difficult to see whether this proposed metamodular capacity stems from language or Theory of Mind.
