and Rationality” in Acta Analytica, an international journal for philosophy in the analytic tradition.
Abstract: Conceptual role semanticists argue that
concepts are individuated in terms of their roles in cognition. Some prominent
conceptual role semanticists argue for the further claim that concepts are
individuated in terms of their rational roles in cognition. This further claim
places substantive normative constraints on concept-constitutive roles. I argue
that conceptual role semanticists can and should resist the claim that
conceptual roles must be specified in inherently normative terms.
