If “tracking” is category-specific a “common structure” may be redundant

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):67-68 (1998)

There is evidence that these processes include particular ways of “tracking” substances and could do all the “tracking” necessary for concept acquisition. There may be no functional need or evolutionary scenario for a general tracking capacity of the kind described by Millikan.
