    Functional Neuroimages Fail to Discover Pieces of Mind in the Parts of the Brain.Guy C. Orden & Kenneth R. Paap - 1997 - Philosophy of Science 64 (S1):S85 - S94.
    The method of positron emission tomography (PET imaging) illustrates the circular logic popular in subtractive neuroimaging and linear reductive cognitive psychology. Both require that strictly feed-forward, modular, cognitive components exist, before the fact, to justify the inference of particular components from images (or other observables) after the fact. Also, both require a "true" componential theory of cognition and laboratory tasks, before the fact, to guarantee reliable choices for subtractive contrasts. None of these possibilities are likely. Consequently, linear reductive analysis has (...)

    Recursion Isn’T Necessary for Human Language Processing: NEAR (Non-Iterative Explicit Alternatives Rule) Grammars Are Superior.Kenneth R. Paap & Derek Partridge - 2014 - Minds and Machines 24 (4):389-414.
    Language sciences have long maintained a close and supposedly necessary coupling between the infinite productivity of the human language faculty and recursive grammars. Because of the formal equivalence between recursion and non-recursive iteration; recursion, in the technical sense, is never a necessary component of a generative grammar. Contrary to some assertions this equivalence extends to both center-embedded relative clauses and hierarchical parse trees. Inspection of language usage suggests that recursive rule components in fact contribute very little, and likely nothing significant, (...)
